Dear Mayor Arakawa,

Q: Who is responsible for the vacant lot fronting Lower Honoapi‘ilani Road in front of Ka‘anapali Beach Club (across the street from Times Supermarket)? The weeds are growing through the fence and blocking the public sidewalk. They need to be trimmed. Thank you.


A: Although the lot is adjacent to the golf course and resort areas, it appears to be owned by private individuals.


For any property maintenance concerns such as this one, you have at least two options for reporting or requesting county service: you can use the county’s See-Click-Fix app called “COM Connect” (go online or download the app on your smartphone) or submit a Request for Service using the county’s trackable RFS system.
