<br /> <br /> <br />Communication No. 2013-1 <br /> <br />Upper Puna Mauka Connectivity Location Criteria <br />(CLC) and Alternative Transportation Routes (ATR) <br /> <br />1. Identify "connectivity location criteria" (CLC) and "alternative transportation routes" <br />(ATR) that highlight innovative ideas for transportation. <br /> <br />2. While emergency use would not be the sole motivation for developing the CLC and <br />ATR, access for emergency vehicles and for resident evacuation are essential. <br /> <br />3. As recommended in the Puna Community Development Plan, consideration must be <br />given to developing a road system that is conducive to pedestrians, bicycles, horses, <br />and other modes of transportation not accommodated on current roads. <br /> <br />4. Consideration should be given to the environmental impacts of noise and air pollution <br />levels on plants, birds, animals, and other species in order to qualify for environmentally <br />friendly and/or environmentally enhancing funding for innovative transportation projects. <br /> <br />5. Where appropriate, criteria could include a requirement that connectivity/access <br />points could be limited to specified modes of transportation, with security cameras <br />monitoring compliance. <br /> <br />6. Review potential CLC and ATR in light of the global interest in our island's efforts <br />related to the transportation components of sustainability (by 2050). <br /> <br />7. Position the CLC and ATR efforts to encourage educational curricula and <br />technological opportunities (such as STEM) for keiki, high school and college students, <br />and young adults. <br /> <br />8. Consider the potential employment opportunities related to the CLC and ATR, <br />including construction work and ecologically-friendly tours (nature tours, hiking and <br />walking routes and tours, biking, horse riding, buggy rides, etc). <br /> <br />
