Mauna Kea use and UH proposed admin rules

Administrative Rules Proposed draft 2 (2.2.19) requires discussion

The Board of Land and Natural Resources approved the University of Hawaii’s Comprehensive Management Plan (CMP) with a Public Access Sub-Plan (PAP) in 2009 with the intention that:

  1. the CMP would align with DLNR’s statutory responsibility to hold the Mauna Kea land in trust for the benefit of Hawai‘i’s people,  and
  2. UH would follow the CMP.

The PAP advocates education, communication, and collaboration when interacting with the public, yet current draft of proposed admin rules directly contradict the recommendations of the PAP.
