Turtle Bay Easement Decision Delayed

Posted April 30th, 2014 @ 1:10pm

Lawmakers have delayed a decision on whether to finance $40 million in bond money for a conservation easement at Turtle Bay Resort until Thursday -- the last day of the legislative session. Some lawmakers were concerned that the scope of the terms of the conservation easement - including public access -- is not in writing. Others complained the Legislature didn't have enough time to evaluate the deal announced this month between Governor Neil Abercrombie, the city, a private land trust and the resort's developers to preserve 665 acres.
