The county constructed a grate across Mamalu street to mitigate storm/rain water. Cars passing over the grate creates a very very loud “clanking” sound 24/7 every day. My 93 y.o mothers bedroom is close by. The entire neighborhood to extremely bothered by this noise pollution. It’s serious. As a first step, I have reached out to Council Member Fukunaga. This was three weeks ago. While I’m following up, we’re still waiting. Can we get some help from your org? I invite you to come over and see for yourselves. I’d be happy to send vids too. Thanks.
Quieter O'ahu Response:
I'm sure this is frustrating and annoying, particularly because your mother's quality of life is impacted. You have taken the right step in notifying your Council Member, Carol Fukunaga, and by following up. I would suggest that if you don't hear back from Council Member Fukunaga soon, that you phone her office and inquire after their actions in response to your email. Her office phone number is 808.768.5006.
Too, let us suggest that you email or phone your neighborhood board representatives. You are in District 14, Liliha/Alewa. Mamalu Street is in sub-district 2. Your sub-district 2 representatives are:
Wesley Fong - (sub-district 2 rep) who is also Chair of the Neighborhood Board, and
Brandon Mitsuda - (sub-district 2 rep) who is also Vice Chair of the Neighborhood Board.
These two actually live in your neighborhood and they would be your best-bet for action. From their roles in the Liliha/Alewa Neighborhood Board they can reach out directly to various Government agencies to find out how long this problem will continue, and in the interim whether there is any way to mitigate the noise. Their contact information is provided below. Good luck in finding a favorable resolution to this noise problem.
We have added you to distribution for future information on noise and related issues across O'ahu.
