The Army says it miscommunicated its Big Island helicopter training plans and that it doesn't plan to expand the land area it uses for training.
U.S. Army Garrison Hawaii said in a statement Friday that the problem stemmed from graphics in an environmental assessment the Army prepared for its training proposal. The graphics, which depict flight paths, were labeled "project area" on the map's legend and caused some to believe the Army wanted to use more land for training, the Army said.
The Army intends to train with helicopters at Pohakuloa, but use the same three landing zones on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa that it used in 2004.
The state will hold a public hearing today on efforts to avoid and minimize harm to nene and other endangered birds during the planned construction of a new development at Kauai Lagoons Resort in Lihue.
The Department of Land and Natural Resources will conduct the hearing at Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School to discuss a Habitat Conservation Plan prepared by developers.
The developers plan to build 705 condominium and time-share units, 65 single-family house lots, a new golf clubhouse and a 27-hole golf course complex.
