News ReleasesMarch 30, 2001
Mayor Jeremy Harris announced today that he will lead a drive to raise funds to replace a stolen hand-carved sign that directed visitors and residents to the North Shore community of Haleiwa.
“This sign is very important for bringing much-needed business to the shops and restaurants in Haleiwa Town,” said the Mayor. “I am asking for contributions so a replacement sign can be put up as soon as possible.”
Donations can be sent to Haleiwa Main Street, P.O. Box 878, Haleiwa, HI 96712. Checks can be made payable to “Haleiwa Main Street,” which is an organization representing businesses and residents who live along the main road through Haleiwa Town. Haleiwa Main Street paid for the original sign.
The missing hand-carved sign, which is about 5-feet by 5-feet in size, was noticed missing on March 19, 2001. It cost about $5,000 when it was installed in 1996.
Two other hand-carved signs to Haleiwa have been stolen previously. Each was recovered within days following an anonymous tip to police.
