Both chose to speak at the start of the meeting. <br />1. William Sanborn, representing the Waimea Preservation Association, testified: Mr. Sanborn <br />announced that the Waimea Preservation Association has scanned old Waimea planning <br />documents and would happily send them via email to anyone interested. <br />2. David Tarnas, representing himself, testified on agenda item #1 General Plan Comprehensive <br />Review: Mr. Tarnas inquired about the timeline for the next South Kohala CDP update and its <br />relation to the upcoming General Plan update. He stressed the importance of stakeholders in <br />the district being able to understand this timeline in order for them to be able to be involved <br />with the process. He expressed concern that the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) process is <br />not very well explained or understood, in general, by the community. He explained that <br />clearing up any confusion about the process would aid community involvement in the process. <br />Additionally, Mr. Tarnas also shared his opinion that Liaison groups provide the Action <br />Committee more autonomy in comparison to Subcommittees and emphasized the importance <br />of identifying community partner groups. <br />
