Trends & Talkers: Oahu Zip LinesUPDATED 11:48 PM HST Feb 20, 2014Video Transcript
Up in arms over plans for a zipline on Oahu. That's what you're debating tonight. Last night we showed you the packed house in Central Oahu, as community members weighed in at the first public meeting on plans to build a Waimalu Nature Center where zip line tours would be offered. The proposal is to build on 447 acres on land up above the Royal Summit and Newtown subdivisions. Today on Facebook, the opinion are pretty divided on this proposal. Oliveira David writes, "The neighborhood needs to be respected ...build it where there are no homes." But Rynee Rynee Clarke counters, "Look how many people showed up to protest a zip line in their neighborhood, and yet how many bother to show up and loudly protest poor academic progress of Hawaii's schools? And Lisa Marie Marshall-Martin says, I hope they pass it. Oahu needs something like this." No final decision just yet. The Department of Land and Natural resources is gathering the input from last night's meeting as they decide how to move forward. We want to know what you think. Head to facebook and weigh in.
