Dear Friends of Haʻikū Stairs,

It’s time to take action to save Haiku Stairs and its environment.

In approximately two weeks, the Haiku Stairs Task Force will submit a report to the city with their recommendations for the future of Haiku Stairs. This task force was convened by Councilman Ikaika Anderson and composed of neighborhood representatives, Friends of Haiku Stairs, landowners, state agencies, the city and other stakeholders.

We know from participating on the task force that by implementing a managed access program similar to the one at Hanauma Bay, we restore the experience, reduce liability and restore peace to our neighborhoods.

However, elected leaders need a strong mandate from the people to make this happen.

No matter where you live, if you believe that Haiku Stairs is worth keeping and should be accessible, we need your teamwork.  Please join us in contacting the leaders listed on the left by October 3.

Key Messages
1. Reopen Haiku Stairs through a managed access program similar to Hanauma Bay.
2. The status quo is not working and is unacceptable to all involved parties.
3. Removing the stairs is the most expensive, difficult option.

Get more background info.
See sample letter.

Thank you in advance for your quick action.
