These rule amendments to Title 13, Subtitle 11, Ocean Recreation and Coastal Areas, parts 1 and 3, are being proposed to allow DLNR to more effectively manage state small boat harbors and related facilities, as well as ocean activities in state waters.

The Maui meeting will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 23, in the Maui Waena Intermediate School cafeteria at 795 Onehee Avenue in Kahului.

Written statements may be submitted at the public hearing or to the chairperson at 1151 Punchbowl St., Room 130, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813 up to one week following the last public hearing date.

The proposed rule amendments can be reviewed online on the Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation (DOBOR) website at http://hawaii.gov/dlnr/dbor/bordraftrules.htm or reviewed in person at the Maui District Office at 101 Maalaea Boat Harbor Road (243-5824) from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, except on holidays and state furlough days.
