For the reasons stated beIow, the'Planning Director's decision to issue the SMA Minor Permit vio.l-ates Hawai'i Revised 4. Petitioner seeks an order vacating the SMA Minor Permit, requiring Developer to pay all accumulated fines, and instructing Developer to submit an appÌication for an SMA Use Permit ("Major") that demonstrates full compliance with County, State, and Federaf laws prior to the Planning Director's approval ÏÏ.

DPP has an affirmative duty to thoroughly review permit applications and to make determinations consistent with the purposes of HRS Chapter 205A and ROH Chapter 25. In issuing ii-s decision on the SMA Mínor Permit, DPP failed to uphold these duties and specifically failed to conduct an independent valuation and take into account pot.ent-ial cumulative impacts; therefore the determinations were based on erroneous findings of material fact or were otherwise arbitrary and capricrous ]II " PET]TIONER 11 " Petitioner Mãlama Pupùkea-Waimea rs a 501 (c) (3) non- profit organizaLíon registered to do business in the State of Hawaí'i" Petrti-oner's mailing address is P.O" Box 1BB, FIale'iwa, 4

Petitioner is a volunteer- Waimea ahupua'a for present and future generatrons through active community stewardship, education, and partnerships.

MPVü has many board, staff, advísory board, and volunteer members who are residents of the Pùpukea/Sunset Beach community and who are frequent users of the Shark's Cove area/ incl-uding Púpttkea Beach Park and Pùpùkea MLCD, for recreatron, research/ ecological, and educational- purposes, including specifically its board members who are long-time residents of the area, Denise Antolini, Roberts (Bob) Leinau, John Cutting, Jim Parsons/ and Laura Parsons¡ âs well as staff members Maxx Elizabeth Phitlips and Jenny Yagodich, and advisory board member Palakiko Yagodich, whose family uses the area for traditional and cultural practrces. 15. Petitioner MPW and its members are specifically, personally, and adversely affected by the "Shark's Cove Development" and its adverse impacts on the Special Management Area and therefore MPW has legal standing to bring this petition. 16. In addition, Petitioner also has standing because it suffered procedural injury when DPP erroneously treated the requiring only an SMA Minor Permrt,"Shark's Cove Development" AS 6
  7. 7. thereby improperly avoiding a formal publiC hearing and proper environmenta-l- review of the substantial adverse impacts and potential mitigation. substantive and procedural- due process for the "Shark's Cove Development" has improperly shifted the burden of proof from the Developer to the community to assess and mitigate the environmental and cumulative impacts of this development in the Specíal Management Area. This procedural- injury and improper placement of the burden on the community violates the spirit and letter of the laws protecting Hawai'i/ s precious shoreline resources including HRS 205A, ROH Ch . 25, the public 1-rust doctríne, and the precautionary principle IV. BACKGROUND 18. Developer purchased Parcels 68, 69, and 70 on June 26, 2014. fl . Moreover, the DPP's lack of compliance with required 19. Beginning in late 2014 or early 2015, Developer undertook unpermitted development including, but not Iinited to, adding nine stationary food trucks, constructing at least two unpermitted decks enclosing stationary food trucks, an unpermitted wooden deck addition to an existing structure, unpermitted plumping improvements/ unpermítted electrical and water connections/ unperÍLitted fences, and unpermitted grubbing 7 and grading.
  8. 8. 20. This development was done with no 'building permits and no SMA permits, and resulted in numerous violat-ions 2I. This development has increased traffic and pedestrian congiestion, unsafe and unsanitary conditions, and created litter, restroor,n over-usage problems in the Special Management Area, adversely affecting Petítioner's and the community's access to and use of the Pupùkea Beach Park and the Pupukea MLCD. Only after community viqilance, monitoring, and complaints to regulatory agencies and elected officials did Developer make any parkinq, erosion, resource over-use, potentlal poJ-Ìution, and effort to reduce the impact of its activities. However, these of spillover litter from eaterÍes at the "Shark's Cove amount of trash removed in 2016 increased to I,617 pounds. As signíficant problems persist 22" This development has, for example, increased Iitter found in the Pupukea Beach Park and the Pùpùkea MLCD as a result Development. " Members have been findinq more and more rubbish in the Special Management Area from various food trucks and have observed patrons walking over wlth food debris and leaving it on g,round" fn 2014, prior to increased commerclal operations at the "Shark's Cove Developmentr " Petitioners removed 763 pounds of trash from the Pùpükea Beach Park and the Pupukea MLCD. In 2015, after Developer's increaserl commer:cial operations, Petitioners removed approximately 1,500 pounds of trash" The B
  9. 9. its tenants' and their customers' trash, Petítioner removed I,686 pounds of trash (annualized, roughly 2,200 pounds/Year) from Pùptrkea Beach Park and the Pùpùkea MLCD. 23. Between February 2015 and November 2015, DeveÌoper j-ntentionally segmented the "Shark's Cove Development" by submitting three separate SMA Minor Permit applications for one unified development, thereby depriving DPP's Planning Director and staff of complete and accurate information. 24. Between March 2015 and January 2016, the Planning Director issued three similar SMA Minor Permits to the same Applicant Gregory A. Quinn, âs agent for the same Landowner and Developer Hanapohaku LLC for a single unified commercial development-the "Project" DPP identified, at the tíme¡ âs "sharks Cove Commerclal Developmerrt," see Jan 5, 2016 Director's öf'September TB, 2011, despite efforts by Developer to contain review meeting (attached as trxhibit "8"), located on three Hawai'i 96112, TMK No" 5-9-011:069 ("Parcel 69"), see 2075/SMA- 41 (attached as trxhibit "E"); and (3) 59-063 Pahoe Road, contiguous parcels owned by the same Developer at: (1) 59-112 Kamehameha Highway and 59-1 124 Kamehameha Highway, Hale'íwa, Hawai'i 96-112, TMK No. 5-9-011:068 (*Parcel 68") , eâô 20L5/ SMA_ 6I (attached as Exhibit "C"), superseding 2OI5/ SMA-B (attached as Exhibit "D"); (2) 59-116 Kamehameha Highway, Hale'iwa, 9

At this meetinq, Developer, represented by co- owner Andrew D. Yani, repeatedly apologized and promised to withdraw all three SMA Minor permits. 28.

See 2016/Sl4l-36 Application File (attached as trxhibit "H") . 30. Developer's May 23, 2016 val-uation for SMA Minor Permit 2016/SMA-36 states that the cost of converting the dentist's offrce into a "commercial kitchen" would total $49,005 (commercial kitchen interior, Ç26,505 and commercíaf kitchen addition, ç22,500) . In addition, Developer states the cost of a related contarner conrmlssary building as $25,000. See 2016/SMA- 36 Application File (Exhibit H//) (J.Uno & Assoc. Inc. cost anal-ysis at p" t3l.)

See 2Or1 / SMA-21 (trxhibit A// ) at 3- 4 . 33. On January 23, 2011 / DPP issued a Notice of Vlolation ("NOV") to Developer for "[m]ul-tiple violations in Special Management Area without a Special Management Area (SUa¡ permit Structures íncluding food trucks, shipping containers, loading trucks, septic tanks, wooden decks and stairs, tents, eating areas with tables and benches, signs and sheds, temporary toilets, fences, walls, parking areas and all other structures which have not been permitted must be removed" Grading has been undertaken without the required permit.

See ZOI]/NOO- O 0Z (attached as Exhibit K// ) 36. Developer did not comply with the NOO and continued unpermitted development and commerciaL activities on the site. 31 . On April 1"9, 207J, while the MPW contested case was stayed by agreement, Developer applied for yet another SMA Minor did not demonstrate that the Project is eligible for a minor SM-A commercial activities including food trucks, after-the-fact grading and grubbing, construction of a parking J-ot, installation of an j-ndividual wastewater system, and the establishment of outdoor, covered eating and drinking areas. " See 2011lSue-14 Apptication Fl1e (attached as Exhibit L//) at 1 38. On May 16, 2071 / DPP rejected SMA Minor Permit 2O71ISMA-14 as incompleLe, finding "that application materials Permit" in part because the value of the food trucks was not included. *ff the food trucks leave the site each day, the application should specify that, and the walue of the trucks will not need to be added Lo the total Project wal-uation.

There is no indication that DPP conducted a Minor Permit 2011 /SMA-21 based on her determination that the Project "has a stated valuation of less than $500,000, and will have no significant ef fect on SMA resources." See 2011 /SNIA-2I thorough and independent review of the "stated valuation." 43 " The permit approval also vÍolated HRS Chapter 2054- 26(2) (a) and ROII Chapter 25-3 "2 (b) (1) because it noL contain any findings regardinq existing or potential cumulative impacts, or indicate that such impacts had l¡een considered.

In another indication of its underestimation of the rmpacts/ DPP acknowledges DeveJ-oper's estimate that "each food truck serves an average of 300 to 400 customers per day." See 2011 /SMA-2I (Exhíbit A//) at 6. This means that the total estimated number of customers to the site is 2,000/day, or 60,000/month, or 720,0OO/year. The impacts of attractlng this large number of customers to the site are nowhere anal-yzed by DPP " "compliance with the Unilateral Agreement (Ue¡ executed pursuant 45.
