Helicopter Landing Area in the Agricultural District <br />Tax Map Key: 1-1-114:022 <br />Hawaii <br />Royal Gardens Subdivision, Puna, Hawau <br />Dear Ms. Leithead Todd: <br />Previously, on September 12, 2001, 1 submitted the application identified above for your review. You <br />responded on September 19, 2011 and ask that we submit an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the <br />proposed action. Since that time an EA was prepared and a FONSI was issued and it was published in <br />the OEQC Bulletin. In addition to this procedural step, during the period since the application was <br />submitted the site was covered by lava, which has now cooled. The applicant's plans have not changed. <br />They still propose to follow existing flight patterns and visit the site as part of their tour. They propose to <br />construct the landing platform in the same area of the subject property. Visitors will be able to view the <br />lava fields and ocean vistas from the site before re-boarding the helicopter and continuing with the aerial <br />tour of the volcano area. <br />We ask that you now forward this application, along with the Final Environmental Assessment to the <br />Planning Commission to consider this permit application. Should you or your staff require any additional <br />information, please contact me directly. Thank you for your prompt review of this application. <br />Sincerely, <br />Gregory R. Mooers <br />President <br />GRM-J <br />Jy <br />X81795 <br />
