Thank you to all property owners who have called or emailed in regards to the notice to clear roadways. Calls are coming in from many property owners, especially those who live off-island. We are compiling a list of your contacts and concerns. The AEA will be making individual assessments to determine how the board will proceed. In the meantime, clearing the roadways is essential to moving forward with future paving projects.
Property owners within Unit I of Aloha Estates Association: We are in the process of planning future paving projects and need your kokua (help). In our effort to maintain the roads and to ensure safety for all who traverse the roads, whether on foot or by vehicle, we are asking you to be responsible for maintaining the area fronting your property.
We ask that all Association members tend to the brush, weeds and high overhanging branches fronting your individual properties, and ensure that all obstructions have been pushed back from the roadway by 10 feet.
Notice to all AEA members
On Aug. 7, 2014, Hurricane Iselle hit the northeast Puna District of Hawaii Island. Aloha Estates suffered power loss for over three days.
Power lines, transformers, and trees fell, blocking the main entrance to the subdivision on Mauna Kea Drive. Heavy rains washed out Mauna Loa Drive (Volcano-side of the subdivision), leaving behind deep crevices, rendering the road unsuitable for vehicle traffic.
Area volunteers, as well as County and HELCO crews, cleared debris. A County investigator recently came to assess the damage on Mauna Loa Drive, which continues to be a road in limbo.
Further updates will be released when they become available.
Mahalo to Glen Barfield, William Mahe, and Ed and Denette Jones for serving on the Aloha Estates Association board. Your volunteer efforts are appreciated.
