HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu City Council is scheduled Tuesday to vote on a resolution to remove the famous Haiku Stars, also known as Stairway to Heaven.

The stairs remain a popular hiking spot despite being off limits and closed since 1987. The Honolulu Police Department said it issued more than 70 citations and made five arrests in the second half of June alone.

City Council Vice Chair Esther Kiaaina introduced the resolution to stop trespassing and remove potential liability from the city.
