FACT CHECK — Cayetano: You Can't Build Home Additions in Pearl City
During Wednesday night’s Honolulu mayoral debate, former Gov. Ben Cayetano stated that Pearl City-area homeowners can’t build additions to their homes because of the five-year sewage moratorium that was enacted in April.
“You can’t develop or build a new home in Pearl City, the Pearl City area, because there’s a five-year moratorium,” Cayetano said. “You can’t even put in an addition to your own home if you have additional people living with you. This is not only the Pearl City area, it’s also the case in Moiliili, McCully and many, many places throughout the city.”
