Mayor Kirk Caldwell released a report today that identifies sites that pose rockfall hazards to city property, and announced that the city has notified about 1,000 private property owners whose land is at high risk of rockfall.

The report was prepared for the city, which has already begun to take action on several sites that posed a danger to the public on city roads, including a hillside on Sierra Drive, makai of Center Street, where the press conference was held.

The study focused on dangers to city property but also revealed some hazards on private property abutting city land. The city is making the report available to the public and sent letters yesterday to alert 1,000 private property owners whose land has rockfall hazards. 

“This is about informing people so they can take action,” Caldwell said. “Just like the city, we are hoping that where there is a risk, private property owners will take action.”

The report is available online by visiting honolulu.gov and clicking “Rockfall Hazard Report,” and printed copies are available at the city’s Municipal Reference and Records Center.
