The 2021 Board of Director election is over and here is the new board:

It’s our understanding that zoning ordinances were last changed in 2011, and since our CC&R’s were already in existence since 1969, they were grandfathered in as allowable restrictions running with the land in Leilani Estates. That means that the CC&R’s are still enforceable as they are written. Everyone moving into Leilani Estates should be aware of these CC&R’s since they are part of the required disclosures set forth in order to purchase property here. So, while there may be many who desire farm animals, the ability to have them cannot happen without a change to the CC&R’s. I suggest that if you believe that 75% or more of the people who own property in Leilani are for such a thing, then start working to change the CC&R’s.
We don’t know who removed the entrance signs. Signs were not ordered by the previous board, nevertheless, we are in the process of getting them replaced. Could the signs have been left up? Yes, but at some point they would have needed to be replaced. Like some have said, it would have been better to order new ones and then replace the old ones once the new signs were finished. Nevertheless, we’re doing what we can to remedy this, and new signs should grace the entrance within a month’s time, maybe less.
As far as the roads are concerned, we are currently limited on what we can do because of what was set in motion already regarding the grant. Nevertheless, there are significant obstacles to overcome.
First, our timeline is based on the previous board’s schedule set forth and the county’s upcoming work on Pohoiki road.
Second, the SBA loan for which we all thought was open, was fully cancelled by the SBA on February 12, 2020, more than a year ago. We are currently working on trying to get this loan reinstated, but there is no guarantee that we’ll be able to accomplish this.
Third, the fact that we don’t own the ground that the roads are on is a hurdle we also have to overcome.
Fourth, permits will be needed, at the very least, for the Kahukai portion. Permits can take a substantial amount of time to get approved.
Fifth, before anything can be done on the Kahukai portion, the county has to complete its work on Pohoiki road and the short section of Leilani Avenue that will be attached to it. Once that’s done, then an engineering firm can evaluate and recommend what needs to be done to get the road put in to the Kipuka.
Currently, the Request For Quote (RFQ) is being worked on by the engineering firm, Okahara & Associates. They should be finalizing the RFQ by next week and then turning it over to us for review. Once this review is done, it can be sent out for bid. We are hoping that initial work on the roads can begin in June.
Recently, we had the Maintenance Manager work on the Kupono section to try and smooth that out with the tractor.
The operating budget is being worked on at this very moment and we expect to have it out to the community by next week sometime so that everyone can see it. This budget will be proposed and most likely approved at the next board meeting.
Minutes of the Meetings
Minutes of the meetings, as directed by Robert’s Rules of Order and by a professional parliamentarian, are to primarily record the actions taken during the meeting. This is the direction we are following. Therefore, if you would like a more detailed account of what is happening, we encourage everyone to attend the meetings that are now occurring in the pavilion or watch the videos.
The videos are/will be posted to YouTube. We have created a new LCA YouTube account since we have been unable to get access to the YouTube account the previous board set up. Subscribe to the “Leilani Community Association” channel.
We are also trying to figure out how members can view these meetings via Zoom.
