Mr. Sogi displayed on a projector an image of a <br />map he had created to exemplify a Kona Open Space Network within the Kona urban area <br />(Communication number 2017-05). The map showed where greenways, bikeways, shoreline <br />access, and parks could link to create this network.

He shared his <br />view that the community should decide upon where the elements of the network should go <br />instead of a consultant. He submitted his mapping data to Planning Staff to be considered in <br />the development of this future OSN map. <br />Communication No. 2017-05 James Sogi Kona Open Space Network Mop can be viewed and downloaded from the <br />following website: http://records.co.hawaii.hi.us/weblink/1/doc/90287/Pagel.aspx <br />2.
