will also preserve 665.8 acres of coastal land
via a $48.5 million funding plan involving the
state and some private groups.
“Like everyone on the North Shore, we
are thrilled that the funding of this historic
agreement has been approved and thank our
lawmakers for supporting this quest to preserve
treasured open space,” says Drew Stotesbury,
CEO of Turtle Bay Resort, which has owned the
852-acre property for more than four years. The
money will go toward creating wetlands, a trail
system and oceanfront access as well as protection of endangered marine and plant species.
The Trust for Public Land is raising $3.5 million
toward the cause. “Like many in the community,
I grew up fishing and playing on the beach along
the North Shore and love and enjoy the unde-veloped beauty,” says Lea Hong, Hawaii state
director of the Trust for Public Land.
Hong visits the Bay Area often and looks
at Marin County’s Open Space District as
a model for other communities. “I look for-
ward to bringing my family here for years to
come,” she says. Cole echoes her sentiments:
“We applaud the resort management team,
state and city government officials and the
land trust representatives for their success-
ful negotiations that will preserve miles of
precious coastline for public benefit and
enjoyment, in perpetuity.” The bottom line is
that visitors to Turtle Bay Resort and North
Shore will forevermore be able to walk the
remote beaches, pretend to be on the set of
Lost and, if they happen to be in the right place
at the right time, maybe witness a newborn
monk seal taking a nap at Kawela Bay.
