At the meeting, the Department of Design and Construction shared that contracts were awarded to reconstruct the driveway and parking lots as well as to install vehicle barriers to protect the fields and new irrigation system.The final design plan for the reconstruction of the ball field and water system was completed and the contract will go out in October 2019.

Council Member Ron Menor proposed an Executive Capital Budget Amendment to Bill 11 (2019) for design, construct and inspect the restoration of the West Loch Bike Path. The budget amendment requests 1.98 million dollars to repave 2.5 miles of bike path between Kapapapuhi Point Park and Asing Park including replacing the bridge over Honouliuli Stream.

Leeward Bikeway Phase 1 Update: After years of advocacy, the Leeward Bikeway took a major step forward on June 25 with the finalization of the National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 process for the section of the Leeward Bikeway between the Pearl Harbor Bike Path and Hawaiian Railway Society station. If all moves forward as planned, the project should go out to bid this Fall.
