Watch the Public Land Development Corporation (PLDC) Public Hearing Live on Akaku

KAHULUI, HI – Akaku: Maui Community Television will be airing the Public Land Development Corporation (PLDC) Public Hearing live on Akaku Channel 54. The meeting is being held on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 from 10:30am to 12:30pm. Olelo is providing the coverage from Oahu and will be sending us the live feed via the statewide Hawaii Interactive Television System (HITS) feed.

This is the only public hearing statewide on proposed adoption of amended administrative rules related to the Public Land Development Corporation. The public hearing will focus on amended rules for the new state agency, which is tasked with increasing revenues through the development of state lands through public-private partnerships.

The Public Land Development Corporation is a state entity created by the Legislature in 2011 to develop state lands and generate revenues for the Department of Land and Natural Resources. Through public-private partnerships, the corporation aims to attract private companies as joint partners in development opportunities.

The corporation was formed after the Legislature passed Senate Bill 1555 which was signed into law as Act 55 by Governor Neil Abercrombie. The corporation is governed by a five-member board of directors. Three state agencies are represented on the board either by its director or their designee. The agencies include the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism; the Department of Budget and Finance; and the Department of Land and Natural Resources. One member is appointed by the speaker of the House of Representatives, and one member is appointed by the president of Senate.

The Hawaii Interactive Television System (HITS) provides interisland video services for the University of Hawaii, Department of Education, state agencies, and others. Point-to-point analog microwave carries four full-motion video signals from Oahu to other islands, with local ITFS distribution to some schools and hospitals. There is one return full-motion video from three of the neighbor islands (Kauai, Maui, Hawaii) back to Oahu. This one channel is currently split allowing for two return video channels. Five University campuses on four islands are directly connected through HITS for two-way video programming. In addition, HITS is interconnected with the State's other video networks and is therefore accessible from additional campuses and government facilities. Hawaii Public Broadcasting Authority (HPBA), the University of Hawaii, and the Department of Education cooperatively plan the program schedule for HITS. In January of 1995 the management of this statewide resource will become the responsibility of the Office of Information Technology at the University of Hawaii. This transfer was conceived to improve operating efficiencies and facilitate further system development and modernization.
