Mayor Kirk Caldwell Continues Rampage against Free Speech Signs in Hau’ula, Oahu, Hawaii, 96717

Mayor Kirk Caldwell continues his rampage against private property rights to push for his pet $13 Million Hau’ula  Fire  Station Relocation Project


The City County of Honolulu purchased Lot 64 in April, 2010. It was an overgrown commercial-zoned lot of 20,297 sq ft. c.  Lot 64 has sufficient land area for a typical fire station like that of Kane’ohe,


Wahiawa, EMwahiawa

or Makaloa by Pam Am Building along Kapiolani Blvd. SONY DSC

A typical fire station sits on approximately 19,000 sq. ft. of land area.

A city maintenance crew came to  grub and clear its Lot 64  for the first time on October 18, 2013 – around 9:00 am.  The crew finished grubbing and hauling the debris around 12:00 pm.




Thereafter, two policemen from the Kahuku sub-station arrived on scene. We pointed out the survey pins of the city-owned Lot 64 to them. It appeared they were dispatched to check if the cleaning and clearing was completed. They left thereafter. We wondered why police resources were used to follow-up on the city’s maintenance  work.


Around 1:00 pm,  police cars converged on our Lot 65 by Reynolds Recycling Container. One was parked on the Masa Market parking lot across the street.


Two women, one with a camera and a clerk appeared on the scene at Lot 65.


This city worker began seizing the free speech sign that said,

“No  $$ for Bus.

Got $7Billion for Rail



Other city workers proceeded to seize our free speech protest signs against Eminent Domain Abuse on our private property Lot 65. The court hearing for ‘public use’ relating to this eminent domain taking is set for March, 2014.

This was the second free speech signs raid on Lot 65. The first was on May 29, 2013. A lawsuit was filed against the city’s illegal actions on August 13, 2013, awaiting trial.


City workers used a bulldozer to uproot and seize three 4′ x 8′ protest signs.





The Mayor  wants to  shut down Reynolds Recycling in Hau’ula. The Department of Planning and Permitting
issued the permit to operate on January 29, 2013.

The Mayor of Honolulu is having a melt-down. What a shame! Bullies don’t belong at Honolulu Hale.
