Vacant lot will likely remain a blight because of legalities

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jan 10, 2014

~~<p><strong>QUESTION</strong>: There is a vacant lot at the corner of Wai&shy;alae and Kapa&shy;hulu avenues, with an abandoned building, graffiti, overgrown weeds, etc. There is a &quot;No Trespassing&quot; sign on the fence from the state Department of Transportation. It has been in this terrible condition for many years. This is a major corner, with high traffic, including many tourists on their way from Wai&shy;kiki to the airport. Just knocking down the building and clearing the weeds once in a while would be a huge improvement. Could you get a response from the DOT?</p>
<p><strong>QUESTION</strong>: The state-owned parcel at Wai&shy;alae and Kapa&shy;hulu avenues is an eyesore, overgrown with weeds, disfigured by graffiti and encumbered with a progressively collapsing structure. What does the state intend to do with it? With basic sanitation facilities could it be a candidate for a trial homeless &quot;amnesty&quot; camping zone? After all, it's right across Wai&shy;alae from a recycling center, which is a main source of income for the homeless.</p>
