North Shore Outdoor Circle Activities
<div><b>The Waialua Branch of the Outdoor Circle planted hundreds of Shower Trees in neighborhood subdivisions around Waialua and Haleiwa in the 1960’s</b></div>
The North Shore Branch of the Outdoor Circle continues to replant and maintain the bike path, with regular workday projects, having planted 218 trees and 649 shrubs over the years.
<div><b>Every month, on Mondays, a small but cheerful and determined group meet in Waimea Valley. They follow Volunteer Coordinator Melani Spielman up into the valley, stopping at Ginger Alley. There they work their magic, pruning, weeding, trimming, clearing, raking- all the things that help this section of Waimea Valley.</b></div>

<div><b>NSOC took a strong stand to preserve the scenic beauty and traditional plantation appearance of historic Haleiwa town by supporting changes in the Haleiwa Special District section of the land use ordinance. This took several years and was completed in December 2018. The benefits are: • adds views of the ocean from Kamehameha Highway as important view planes for protection • protects the public view of historic structures • requires plantation color schemes to be used in new development • extends the district boundaries to Puaena Point • requires a Special District permit and review for any proposed cell towers with the District boundaries. • limits the locations within the District where food trucks can operate, requires permitting of food trucks, restricts signage, requires landscaping, off-street parking and proper waste disposal where food trucks operate.</b></div>
<div><b>The North Shore Outdoor Circle took the initiative to beautify Weed Circle, meets with state crews to assess pruning, and enlists volunteer arborists to help direct state crews on each tree’s specific needs. Weed Circle has a beautiful variety of shower, gold, kou, and hala trees, along with plumeria and one banyan tree. Almost all the trees memorialize a person who has been very special to this community.</b></div>

We continue to advocate for legislation to eliminate commercial activities in three North Shore Parks and other beach rights-of-way, to solve the problem of large “advertising” trucks parked at Haleiwa Beach Park and other beaches caused by rental companies and surf schools operating there, and to control other sign clutter that blocks the ocean view at our beach parks.
