Kailua Little Fire Ant Workshop

October 10, 2023 at 6pm
Lanikai Park Pavilion

Little Fire Ants are worse than the ants we already know -- they make it impossible to enjoy the outdoors and to harvest fruit because they "rain down" from trees. They also blind pets when they bite their eyes. It is not too late to eradicate them from O'ahu by aggressively screening and treating all outbreaks.

There are multiple sites in Kailua (Lanikai, Ka'elepulu, Maunawili) that have multiple LFA outbreaks being treated right now. These are only locations that have been tested and reported. Please join us to pick up free supplies to check your property and learn how to use them. Free postage to send samples for identification also included.

The O'ahu Invasive Species Committee (OISC) will have experts to check ant samples to ID LFA. For those who want to get a head start and check their ant samples the night of the event please review their short guide to Surveying for the Little Fire Ant.

Lanikai Transportation Management Plan - (Resolution 22-125)

The plan, adopted by the City Council, has DTS looking into how to relieve traffic congestion in Lanikai, improve access to first responders and overall roadway safety, provide ease of access to Lanikai Beach, and provide reasonable and appropriate parking controls for Lanikai residents and Lanikai Beach users.  It will include an assessment that evaluates the feasibility of potential options, including, but not limited to, additional parking restrictions, off-street and off-site parking solutions, improved transit options, and improved multi-modal access opportunities.

The Ka'iwa Ridge Trail (Pillbox) draft environmental assessment is now complete. See here. The draft management plan is being worked on now. Access the draft here.

If you have questions regarding parking rules, check out the Revised Rules of Honolulu (ROH)
Chapter 15-14.1. Page 41 There is no parking 10 feet from a fire hydrant, 4 feet from a driveway, no parking on a corner, and 30 feet approaching a STOP sign. 

Specific to Kaiolena one way: Parallel parking only facing makai (the ocean), you may park on the unimproved sidewalk area (dirt) OR the road providing one leaves 3 feet inside the yellow line so that a wheelchair can pass.

Note: There a rule for no parking on unimproved sidewalks BUT that rule will NOT be enforced here in Lanikai because it isn’t enforced anywhere on the island.
