(BIVN) – University of Hawaii attorney Pete Manaut delivers the final testimony to the Hawaii Board of Land and Natural Resources on behalf of the applicant for a conservation district use permit to build the Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea.
Following Manaut’s final argument and rebuttal, land board members questioned the attorney and University president David Lassner on the application.
Land board member Stanley Roehrig wanted to know if the University planned to implement any of the recommendations filed by PUEO in their exceptions document. Lassner and Manaut also tried to answer questions about the revenue generated by the Mauna Kea Vistor Information Center, and UH policies towards Native Hawaiian cultural practices on the mountain.
