Board of Directors Meeting
November 20, 2013
7:00 PM Kilauea Neighborhood Center
Kalihiwai Ridge homeowners can find official minutes to KRCA Board of Directors meetings by setting up their own Account Log In at www.associaonline.com. They can assist you in getting your 7 digit homeowner number. After you have that you will then need to set up a User Name and Password. You can also set up having the Agenda to these meetings sent to you by e-mail the day before the meetings are held every other month.
Just a brief message this month on the meeting held at the Princeville Community Center. It was a much more convenient place to meet with plenty of parking, good lighting, and a great turn out. I think everyone felt comfortable with the check in process of members only attending and having security on sight.
The main concern of the evening was the movie being made on Kahiliholo Road at the property known as Wally's World. The intrusion for this part of the neighborhood has been beyond what anyone should have to endure. Helicopters flying up at eye level directly in front of people's lanais, spotlights shining into the sky at all hours of the night, endangered sea birds flying into these lights and getting confused, hurt or killed, dangerous parking along the road, and the ongoing noise. Permits were acquired through the County for this activity to take place in a private neighborhood that needs to be seriously questioned for any future projects.
It was good to see new people showing up to express their concerns and to see the input allowed early in the meeting so everyone could speak for their two minutes. I hope this policy would continue so the board first thing can learn what is on the minds of their neighbors who they serve.
Until we meet again.
