Meeting to be held on proposed zipline in Aiea

Royal Summit

There’s a proposal to install a zipline above an Aiea neighborhood, but not everyone is happy about it.

The Aiea Neighborhood Board will take up the issue at its monthly meeting.

Towne Development owns the 447 acres above Royal Summit and wants to build a zipline on its land.

But those against it worry about safety issues and the traffic impacts it will have on residents in the area.

The meeting was held Monday, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Aiea Public Library.

“The four concerns that were raised earlier. It had to do with noise traffic crime. All four points were addressed in our draft environmental assessment,” Towne Development President Christopher Lau.

“And all that traffic is going to affect me and the 400 something homes inside here,” Newtown resident Steven Tanaka said.

The state land board will take up the project’s environmental assessment on Feb. 19 at Waimalu Elementary School Cafeteria.

The public is invited to attend the meeting.
