Hilo High gymnasium project delayed by high winds

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A gymnasium project at Hilo High School has been delayed because of trouble getting building permits.

The plans for the gym would enable it to sustain winds up to 115 miles per hour, which would allow it to be an emergency shelter but not a hurricane shelter.

However, Hawaii County has not issued a building permit because of a new regulation that calls for the structure to sustain 155 mile per hour winds.

According to Hilo Rep. Jerry Chang, state Civil Defense supports the current plans for the gymnasium, which is intended for school and public use.

Chang said he's disappointed by the delays and hopes the Department of Education and consultant can work it out without spending too much time and money.
