Express Your Thoughts on the Highway 130 Project

I’m soliciting comments for the upcoming Highway 130 meeting that will be held at Keaau Middle School on Monday, October 18th.

Anyone that has attended the KPAG Highway 130 meetings know that they are very structured and that often times the public gets shut out from having their questions answered.

Typically, only us folks that are on the committee are allowed to speak freely and ask questions or make comments when we want to during these meetings.

Being that I’m on the KPAG committee and will be allowed to speak at any given time during Monday’s meeting… I will allow folks to post comments here or email then to me at my email address at  damontucker @ yahoo.com (no spaces).  Please title Email as “Questions for H130 Meeting”
