Our comments on the Draft Supplemental EIS filed:
From Honolulu Traffic July 24, 2013.
On Monday, our attorneys filed comments on the Draft Supplemental EIS (DSEIS) on behalf of the plaintiffs in our lawsuit and Cliff Slater also filed his personal comments on it also.
The DSEIS was required by Judge Tashima in his ruling against the City and FTA on the three issues of their needing to:
a) justify their disqualification of the Beretania Street Tunnel Alternative as not being preferable to the current Project,
b) justify their conclusion that the rail Project would not have a significant effect on Mother Waldron Park, and
c) document the environmental effects on Traditional Cultural Properties.
Comments were required to be filed by July 22 as we warned earlier.
