Our thanks to the Waikiki Neighborhood Board (NB) for their hospitality the evening of 8 January. Quieter O'ahu gave a short presentation about noise on O'ahu and across the state, current ordinances and statutes, general lack of enforcement, and provided several recommendation on how the NB organization could positively impact the noise problem. Thanks to Dr. Brian Bagnall of The Outdoor Circle and the newest Waikiki NB Board Member for the invitation. We hope we provided ideas that will enable the Waikiki NB to move forward. A special thanks, too, to the Waikiki resident attending the meeting who, despite our attempts to say "No," nonetheless insisted on making a contribution to the work of Quieter O'ahu with the comment that "...you can always use more stamps." It was a kind and gracious act and we are humbly appreciative. Mahalo nui loa! We'll be sure your donation is well invested!

Let us know what you think. Are you tired of the noise? Do you have ideas on how to combat the noise? Tell us about it.
Also, use the "Contact A Quieter O'ahu" form (under "More" on the menu bar) to let us hear from you. We will be compiling email addresses of those interested in reclaiming a quieter O'ahu and hope to have a newsletter circulating soon. The newsletter will update you on legislation and the positions of our legislators, provide information on what Neighborhood Boards are doing, and generally serve as a clearing house to get information out quickly so people can act TOGETHER for positive change.
