Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Wahiawa (HI) Stryker hearing
Hawaii Stryker plan gets wary welcome

WAHIAWA — An Army proposal to permanently base a $1.5 billion Stryker brigade combat team in Hawai'i received a somewhat warmer reception last night in Wahiawa than it had in several previous meetings.

Last night's hearing was the fourth of nine to take place in Hawai'i, Alaska and Colorado regarding a revised environmental impact statement on the Stryker brigade team. The Stryker unit would consist of about 4,000 soldiers, 328 Stryker vehicles and about 600 other vehicles.

Hugh Lowery, a member of the Wahiawa-Whitmore Neighborhood Board's ad hoc committee that reviewed the EIS proposal, said the committee and community are keeping an open mind.

On the other hand, he said, they would like some reassurances from the military.
