State to lease Malaekahana on North Shore

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 09:20 a.m. HST, May 17, 2014

 The state Department of Land and Natural Resources is inviting applicants to submit proposals to lease the Kahuku section of Malaekahana State Recreation Area on Oahu's North Shore.

The department says proposals should include areas for public beach access and tent camping. They should also include proposals for the optional rental of alternative, temporary structures such as small Hawaiian hale, tent platforms or other non-permanent structures.

The department said Friday the successful bidder will negotiate a five-year lease with the Division of State Parks.

The campground is currently operated by the Friends of Malaekahana under a month-to-month permit.

The state plans to improve bathroom and shower facilities while it considers applications.

Applications are due June 19.

...how about improving the parking lot first, so the public wouldn't need a four-wheel drive to get to the beach!

How dare they lease these lands! The State stole my families house through condemnation and now wants to lease this to another entity? This is absolutely unacceptable. These lands now belong to the public and over paid civil servants should not be allowed to take it away from the public via a lease agreement.

Which is why the state has no business taking over a good portion of Turtle Bay as "conservation" land.

Many fond memories of Malaekahana.... hope whoever leases it doesn't ruin it for everyone else. Agree about the parking lot, though.
