Mr. Jon Olson, representing himself, testified on agenda items 1 and 2: #1— Report on the General <br />Plan Comprehensive Review: Mr. Olson did not like the Planning Department's presentation format <br />on the General Plan and thought that it was not useful for people who were not (from the)Planning <br />(Department). He also felt that the build out number projections displayed during the presentation <br />were unreasonably low and did not reflect reality. #2 — Response from the Department of Parks <br />and Recreation re: Permitting Farmers' Market Operations at County parks and facilities: <br />Communication No. 2017-10.1: Mr. Olson wants the Volcano Farmers' Market (at Cooper Center) <br />to be legally added to the list of public county parks which allows the operation of Farmers' <br />markets. He felt that the conception of the Volcano Farmers' Market should have had the public's <br />consent rather than a single individual or group calling on a government official to grant them <br />permissions. <br />Hawai `i County is an Equal Opportunity Provider and Employer Page I <br />
