After that meeting you were going to obtain clarification from the Governor on exactly what his intentions are regarding the facility. We just met with the Mayor to see what he understood the Governor agreed upon and it appears that the Governor does in fact want to rescind the Executive Order and take back ownership of the Natatorium so he could turn the complex into a beach volleyball facility. He even stated the Mayor could make this announcement publicly. May I ask that when you meet with the Governor, could you please clarify that this is in fact what his intentions are. After your meeting we can touch bases again and determine which direction were supposed to go and how to move forward. I hope to hear from you soon. Mahalo, Lori)/612012

Ching [mailto:dlching@aol.com]Sent: Monday, April 16,2012 10:18 PMTo: Fulton, JimCc: jillbyusradke@gmail.com; rickegged@waikikiimprovement.comSubject: Natatorium EISHi Jim,I thought I should let you know I got a call today from Angie Westfall, head of the State Historic PreservationDepartment (SHPD). She recapped a meeting she attended last Thursday, April 12 at the City about theNatatorium and the EIS. The meeting appeared to be led by DPP and Wil Chee (the consultant). She observedthe process/conversation was focused on demolishing the memorial and building a new beach. As an example,the consultant cited pool restoration cost at $60M -- a number that has no basis in fact.Rick, Jill and I understood that when we met on March 21st, the Mayor and DDC director Lori Kahikina gave theircommitment to ensuring the EIS process would proceed unbiased. We are concerned that it appears theconsultant and DPP have not been redirected since they were given their pro-demolition marching orders fromMufi Hannemann in 2009.Is there anything else we can do from our side to try to achieve a fair and objective EIS?Thanks for letting us know how we can help.Aloha, Donna9/1112012

With regards to the proposed oceanfrontreplacement District 1 lifeguard sub-station ewa of the Aquarium, he said: "As long as the Natatorium bleachers structure remains useable, the substation project will not need to be implemented. The project was initiated by the City because the long-range plan is to remove the Natatorium structure. There could also be a sudden failure of large portions of the pool structure, which could make the existing bleacher structure unsafe for use by Ocean Safety. For preparing for these possibilities, the permits and preliminary design will be completed in this current work. If either of these two events occurred, the City would be able to quickly move forward in building a replacement facility. "It was my understanding, based on the last meeting Rick Egged and I had with you guys, the Mayor and JimFulton, that the CIA by Pacific Consulting Services had been completed and that the EIS by Wil Chee was tobe put on immediate hold. We did not specifically ask that no further work be done by thearchitect, Jeffery Nishi. Nor did we inquire about the permit process. But we are gettinginquiries about the status of the project subsequent to Marks report at the NB meeting sobefore I answer people, I want to make sure I am correct in my statements.So that I might have clarity on this, can you confirm that: 1. The CIA is done. (and if it is, can we get a copy?) 2. The EIS is on hold. 3. No further work is being done by the architect 4. No permits are being pursued or processed for the new buildingThanks very much.Aloha, Donna 9/11/2012

The reality isthat the natural shoreline state in that area is the scrubbed rock that exists in front of the Aquarium. So the ideathat a "lovely sandy beach" could be put there "forever" is really not possible under current marine conservationdistrict parameters.In fact, all the engineering studies -- even the ones commissioned by Mufi have found thatremoving any part of the pool would jeopardize/destabilize Sans Souci beach. Im attaching anaerial photo of the shoreline taken by Ron Siausen so you can see what I mean about therocky shoreline ewa of the Natatorium and how the pool and bleachers act as a retainingsystem for Sans Souci. Demolition advocate, Rick Bernsteins photoshop of a sandy shorelinewhere the pool currently sits is misleading and not an ocean engineering possibility.As for the CB articles -- -- point that halting a $750K (redundant, as there is already one in place) EIS is a waste of money,lets consider what a real waste it would be to remove the $4.5 MILLION spent to reopen the bathrooms, oceansafety district and rescue unit offices, parking and volleyball court.And even if you are ok with the idea of losing/removing all of that infrastructure investment, doing so would givethe City incentive to push forward with their plans to build a new replacement facility for the lifeguards on theocean front lawn at Queens Surf next to the Aquarium, resulting in a much more egregious loss of precious open 9111/2012

GQxdon.Y,,K,P?ngPOSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Aug 23, 2012Share-- ADVE/WseNENT •• .. IlDlmmS6MH<r .. The administration of Gov. Neil Abercrombie appears ready to regain control over the WaikikiWar Memorial Natatorium and then try to restore its crumbling facade and bleachers, reversing a direction takenby the city in recent years to clear the structure from the valuable piece ofWaikiki Beach.The embattled saltwater pool is owned by the state but controlled by the city under a governors executive order.Abercrombie and Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle, after a meeting in May, have "come to an agreement" that wouldlikely lead to the rescinding of an executive order that gave authority over the Natatorium to the city, city Designand Construction Director Lori Kahikina said Wednesday.Kahikina said she wants to meet with state Department of Land and Natural Resources officials to determine thenext step.An executive order taking the Natatorium back from the city has not yet been issued by Abercrombie. But DonalynDela Cruz, the governors press secretary, said Wednesday that its no secret Abercrombie would like to makebetter use of the area, including restoring the existing memorial if its feasible."Were in major evaluation mode," Dela Cruz said. "It all depends on whats safe, what can be done, and whatsaffordable."Dela Cruz added: "The governor believes its time for it to be fixed, or have a purpose."Abercrombie, in May, told Hawaii News Now that a beach volleyball stadium incorporating the existing swimmingpool would be a good idea."Im working on something right now," the governor said.Jim Bickerton, attorney for the Kaimana Beach Coalition, said Abercrombies intentions fly in the face of arecommendation by a task force that voted in 2009 to demolish the Natatorium and construct a memorial beach."I think peoples voices are being ignored, and usually when that happens, theres some monied interest in thepicture thats probably not ready to show their hand," he said.The citys own studies show it could cost up to $60 million to restore the Natatorium while it would cost about$1.5 million to create a new beach, he said.Bickerton said that in2002, then-U.S. Rep. Abercrombie told members ofthe Kaimana Beach Coalition that theyhad convinced him that a public beach park was the best solution for the long-discussed stalemate.Efforts to contact members of the Friends ofthe Natatorium, which promotes preservation ofthe memorial, wereunsuccessful Wednesday night.The Natatorium was constructed in 1927 as a tribute to those who fought and died in World War 1. But by 1979,the pool had become so neglected that the Department of Health shut it down.The battle over whether to restore it or tear it down in favor of a wider beach has raged ever since.Then-Mayor Jeremy Harris supported full restoration and the City Council earmarked $11 million for that 9/1112012
  57. 57. Page 3 of3purpose in 1998. About $4 million was spent on restoration ofthe facade. But efforts to restore the pool werestymied by a lawsuit filed by the Kaimana Beach Coalition.One of Mufi Hannemanns first acts as mayor in January 2005 was to halt repairs on the Natatorium, an issue hecampaigned on.The task force created by Hannemann led to the recommendation to demolish the structure in favor of a newbeach.A private consultant was given a $1.3 million contract in 2007 to oversee the task force and carry out anenvironmental impact study to look at various alternatives based on the panels recommendations. Kahikina saidthe EIS was about to go to the public hearing stage and was scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.The contract was recently suspended after the governor began indicating the state may seek to regain control ofthe Natatorium, Kahikina said. About $750,000 ofthe contract has been spent, she said. 9111/2012

I told him that we had put the contract on hold, and had no plans topublish an EIS at this time pending developments, or some words to that effect. I do not regard thematter as settled yet, and I do not believe I communicated any suggestion that a potential turnoverhad been settled with the State.He was dismayed that the State could take the project away from the City. I pointed out that theNatatorium is technically State-owned. He also thought that the "Commission" meaning the TaskForce appointed by former Mayor Hannemann should have been informed or consulted. I respondedthat the "Commission" (of which he was a member) of was a short-term appointment and itsexistence ended with the Task Forces recommendation to the former mayor.If Rick Bernstein is telling people that I said the contract has been cancelled, he is misrepresentingwhat I told him. Even his own reactions to what I spoke to him about over the phone indicated to methat he understood that the contract would likely be cancelled only if the State turnover wasconsummated, and it was not yet a certainty.He speculated that the entire cost of the consultant contract (which he assumed to be $2 or $3million) would be lost, and I informed him that if the contract was terminated the consultant wouldonly be paid for work completed up to the point of termination, and the contract was considerablysmaller than he thought (I could not recall the exact figure at the time).Mr. Bernstein also speculated that perhaps the Governor had some commitment from a corporatesponsor, such as Nike, to help defray the costs of development or operations. He also seemed to beaware that the Governor proposed publicly the possibility of the Natatorium being converted forbeach volleyball use.Terry L.

We agreed that if Cruz asked about the status of the EIS, then it was betterto say that the EIS is currently on hold while discussions between City and Statecontinue.As a courtesy, Lori K. emailed Bill Aila as a heads up that Cruz is asking about theNatatorium and may be calling him.From: Kim McCoy, LouiseSent: Tuesday, August 21, 2012 5:56 PMTo: Kahikina, Lori M K; william,j,aila@hawaii.govCc: Fulton, JimSubject: RE: NatatoriumAloha all, 2
  69. 69. Just got off the phone with Cruz and told her the EIS is not cancelled and the City is still in discussions with theState. She did NOT ask about the status of the EIS so I did not have to say that it was put on hold.She most likely will call DLNR since she asked which agency at the state is dealing with DDC.Louise Kim McCoyPress SecretaryOffice of the MayorCity and County of Honolulu(808) 768-7798 office(808) 768-4242 fax-----Original Message-----From: Kahikina, Lori M KSent: Tuesday, August 21, 2012 5:50 PMTo: william.j.aila@hawaii.govCc: Kim McCoy, Louise; Fulton, JimSubject: NatatoriumAloha BillJust wanted to give you a courtesy "heads up" that Catherine Cruz (KITV4) has been callingregarding the EIS.Louise Kim McCoy will be calling her and letting her know that the EIS has not beencancelled but is on hold pending further discussions between the City and the State.Let me know if you have questions or concerns.If you need it, my cell phone is 222-9653.MahaloLori 3
