Board of Water Supply (BWS): Ann Wong reported the following:

• Main Break Report: Wong noted that the main break report was not available.

• General Water Announcements

o Rain Water Recapture and Reuse -- The BWS is partnering with the City Department of Facility Maintenance (DFM) -- Storm Water Quality Branch in an effort to encourage water conservation with rain water recapture and reuse. Oahu's storm drains are separate from the sewer system and are specifically designed to handle rain water run-off to prevent flooding in developed areas. By reducing the amount of water that enters storm drains, methods such as a rain barrel catchment system, rain gardens, and xeriscaping can reduce the negative effects on streams and beaches when rain water picks up debris and pollutants from the ground. The BWS estimates the average home uses 50 percent of their water outdoors. By installing a rain barrel catchment system at your home, you are helping the BWS to preserve Oahu's water resources and encourage water conservation. A rain barrel catchment system allows you to capture rain water for use with outdoor, non-drinking water activities, such as non-edible plant irrigation. The BWS encourages its use because it reduces the amount of drinking water used for non-drinking purposes. For information about rain barrel catchment systems, visit www.boardofwatersuply.com/conservation and for more information about reducing storm water run-off, visit www.cleanwaterhonolulu.com.

o Halawa Xeriscape Garden Workshops -- The BWS and Friends of Halawa Xeriscape Garden continue to offer workshops that highlight the concept of xeriscaping -- an innovative means of conserving water through efficient landscaping. These workshops offer creative ideas to help you maintain a water efficient and attractive landscape while reducing your outdoor water use and reliance on harmful chemical pesticides. A full list of xeriscape workshops is available at, www.boardofwatersupply.com. Here is a list of the new upcoming workshops:

 Friday, February 10, 2017: Sunflower Garden Art

 Friday, February 17, 2017: Benefits of Companion Gardening

 Friday, March 3, 2017: Magnificent Neem

• Diamond Head Reservoir Tank: Ann Wong noted that BWS has continued to monitor the Diamond Head Reservoir and urged the community to call 9-1-1 if any suspicious activity is seen in the area.

• Kapahulu Water System Improvements: Wong noted new service laterals will be installed on Second Avenue and should be completed by the end of February 2017. Wong added that the portion of Kaimuki Avenue from Kapahulu Avenue and Fourth Avenue is slated for the next area to be improved.

• Booster Station Trimming: Wong noted she will follow up next month on the concern brought forth before the meeting by board member Richard Figliuzzi regarding tree trimming near a booster station.

RESIDENT/COMMUNITY CONCERNS

Kapahulu Avenue Park Update: Chair West announced that four (4) City and County of Honolulu departments including the Department of Transportation Services (DTS), Department of Enterprise Services (DES), Department of Facility Management (DFM) and the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) are reviewing the memorandum of understanding (MOU) regarding the proposal to have a stretch of the Kapahulu Bike Path be subject to City and County of Honolulu Park Hours. Chair West noted he will continue to update the board. Michelle Matson asked and Chair West responded that the location in question is the same area that was presented on at a past meeting along the Kapahulu Bike Way. Chair West explained that the logic of the MOU is to allow DPR to enforce park closure hours which the board has supported.

Medical Marijuana Dispensary at 727 Kapahulu Avenue: Chair West noted that he has contacted the City and County of Honolulu and the State of Hawaii regarding the Marijuana Dispensary. Chair West added that he has received correspondences from Komita of a permit consultant firm that was hired by the dispensary. Chair West requested Komita bring a presentation before the board. Chair west will continue to update the board. Michelle Matson added that this dispensary will be at the old Bank of Hawaii building and could contain a vault. Chair West responded that as marijuana dispensaries in Hawaii are not federally legal, banks may not be able to take their cash which is why they may have to keep the money in house.

Top Golf: Resident Frankling Chung informed the board of two (2) articles that have been written recently pertaining to Top Golf coming to Hawaii. Top Golf is a two (2) to three (3) story driving range which has restaurants, nightclubs, and bars which are present in 30 cities across the country. The first article was in Pacific Business News on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 where Mark Rolfing of the Golf Channel stated he was working with the City and County of Honolulu to bring Top Golf to the Ala Wai Golf Course. Chung added that the current driving range was recently renovated that cost the City and County of Honolulu one (1) million dollars. The second article came out on Thursday, February 2, 2017, in the Star Advertiser which mentioned Senator Glenn Wakai wanting to bring Top Golf to the Aloha Stadium property. Chung concluded that he just wanted to bring attention of the board to the potential of Top Golf coming to Honolulu and is worried about non-golf development in the Ala Wai Golf Course area.

Questions, comments, and concerns followed:

1. Mark Rolfing: Bert Narita asked and Chung responded that Mark Rolfing was the Director of Marketing at Kapalua Golf Course and is a broadcaster on the Golf Channel. Last year he was on the Lieutenant Governor's Sports advisory committee. Chung added that the article was ambiguous but is highlighting efforts to bring Top Golf to Hawaii. Bert Narita requested additional information on the proposal's legislative support. Chair West noted he will look into the matter and have it on future agendas.

2. Executive Order: Michelle Matson noted there may be an Executive Order (EO) that sets aside the land for the Ala Wai Golf Course and could have statutory requirements to have the area maintained as a golf course. Michelle Matson added that she will look into the issue to make sure the land is protected. Chung responded that the EO in question was from the State of Hawaii and it allows the City and County of Honolulu to manage the Ala Wai Golf Course.

3. Date of Articles: Linda Wong asked and Chung provided the articles. The date of the Pacific Business News article was on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 and the Star Advertiser article appeared on Thursday, February 2, 2017.

The LUO allows plant nursery uses in the AG-1 Restricted Agricultural, AG-2 General Agricultural, I-1 Limited Industrial, I-2 Intensive Agricultural, and IMX-1 Industrial-Commercial Mixed Use Districts. Crop production is also permitted in these zoning districts, as well as the P-2 General Preservation and Country Districts.
