My Turn: Kona Open Space Network planning continues

This letter is in regards to the Aug. 24 front-page article “Citizen Panels Put on Hold.” The article was critical of the suspension of advisory committee meetings and holdovers with expired terms. I am one of the holdovers for the Kona Community Development Plan Action Committee (KCDP AC). I have been serving on this volunteer Committee since 2014 through three different administrations. I too am waiting for someone to replace me. However, I also know that it is never a good thing to have eight out of nine members replaced at once because you lose the institutional knowledge of the group.
