July 17th Waipio Access Point Road Improvements: Aloha Clubhouse Community Meeting

“I am worried about the abandoned vehicles on the High School side. Why isn’t the city doing anything to maintain that area? It’s getting worse on that side of the road. People are walking on the residents’ side. Last week a biker flipped in his front lawn because the road isn’t even. Many of the houses on the road are multi-resident, so parking is a need.” -Resident Gary expressing his voice
