Dear Stakeholder:

The University of Hawaiʻi (UH) requests that you review and provide input and comments on the subject public draft of the Master Plan for the University of Hawai‘i Maunakea Lands: E Ō I Ka Leo (Listen to the Voice). In accordance with its name, this draft has been developed with input from a wide sample of stakeholders, and UH now seeks feedback from the broader community. UH is accepting input on this draft plan through October 26, 2021. You may access and comment on the draft plan by visiting https://maunakea.konveio.com/.

Input is welcome on any section or topic of the draft Master Plan. Once you access the link above, details will be provided on the website on how to submit your comments via the online commenting tool, U.S. mail, voicemail, or online general comment form.

You are also invited to attend our virtual public forum, the details of which, including how to submit questions, will be announced at a later date.

We appreciate your input and views on this draft Master Plan as it undergoes continuing review and we look forward to receiving comments and recommendations via the methods outlined above. This plan will be updated to address the input and comments received and will then be considered in its “pre-final” form by the Board of Regents (BOR). Once approved by the BOR, the final plan will guide decisions regarding land uses on the mountain for the next twenty years.

Again, we encourage you to access and comment on the draft plan by visiting https://maunakea.konveio.com/.
