The entire committee has not been able to meet as a group due to COVID 19 restrictions and precautions; however, Cochairs Kealani Winter and Likeke Bumanglag continue to meet with R&D subcommittee manager Nohea Alexander to ensure key management elements of the heiau continue on schedule. They will meet with members of the Cultural Resources Commission (CRC) on November 12. The agenda includes a discussion about revising the April 2006 Archaeological Site Preservation Plan, and other matters including informational signage protocols.

The purpose of the CRC is to advise and assist Federal, State and County government agencies in carrying out their historic preservation responsibilities as authorized under Hawai`i County Code, Chapter 2, Article 44.
