Public Has Until Midnight Friday to Submit Comments on Rail DEIS To Beat Deadline

Still sitting on your comments to the Honolulu rail transit project’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS)? You can save yourself a trip to the post office or the City’s transit office by submitting your comments using a form at the project’s website.

To be considered part of the official comment process, comments must be sent by midnight, Hawaii Standard Time, on Friday, February 6. Just to be sure the deadline is well understood, that’s 2400 hours on the 24-hour military clock on 6 February.

There’s still time to mail your comments to the Department of Transportation Services, City and County of Honolulu, 650 South King Street, 3rd Floor, Honolulu, HI 96813. Just be sure your letter is postmarked on Friday.

Even though the official DEIS comment period ends this week, citizens will be able to submit comments just as they always could prior to the DEIS process. Just use the form on the project website.
