Meeting Agenda, Materials, Minutes, and Testimony
The Maunakea Management Board (MKMB) provides the community with a sustained, direct voice for the management of the Maunakea. The volunteer members represent a cross-section of the community and serve as the community’s voice providing input on operations and activities, developing policies, reviewing and providing recommendations for land uses planned for Maunakea. Visit the State of Hawaii, Office of Information Practices, Calendar of Events for the formal meeting notice and agenda. Files are available in PDF format.
All written testimony on agenda items received after posting of the agenda and up to 24 hours in advance of the meeting will be distributed to the board. Late testimony on agenda items will be distributed to the board within 24 hours of receipt. Testimony may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Testimony may also be mailed to the designated address (200 W. Kāwili St., Hilo, HI, 96720), or via facsimile at (808) 933-3208. Please allow sufficient time for delivery prior to the meeting date so the testimony can be considered. All written testimony submitted are public documents. Therefore, any testimony that is submitted for use in the public meeting process is public information and will be posted on the board’s website.
Those wishing to provide oral testimony for the virtual meeting may register via email to email@example.com. Given constraints with the online format of our meetings, individuals wishing to orally testify must register no later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of the meeting in order to be accommodated. It is highly recommended that written testimony be submitted in addition to registering to provide oral testimony. Oral testimony will be limited to three (3) minutes per testifier.
Meeting Live and Virtual
