PEPEEKEO, Hawaii – The second of four TMT & Maunakea: Common Ground talks was held Wednesday night at the Kulaimano Community Center in Pepe’ekeo. The discussions are organized by the Hilo-Hamakua Community Development Corporation in order to “bring more information to the community that it serves (from north of the singing bridge in Hilo to Waipi`o Valley) so that people can make informed decisions about the TMT.”
There was a change in the scheduled list of speakers… Sandra Dawson, the manager of Hawaiian Community affairs for the Thirty Meter Telescope, was substituted out with Michael Bolte, president of the TMT board of directors.
He talked about the lengthy TMT approval process and took questions from the audience afterwards.
The next Common Ground meeting will be Tuesday June 2 at Laupahoehoe Community Public Charter School Cafeteria.
