Keep Waianae Country! Stop industrial encroachment on agricultural land!

Developers want to change agricultural land to industrial in the heart of Lualualei valley in Wai’anae, some of the richest and most productive farm lands in Hawai’i.

The Waianae Sustainable Communities Plan is coming before the City Council on Nov. 2nd (1pm, Kapolei Hale).

1. Please send letters to the council members through this link sponsored by KAHEA.

2. Come to the hearing to testify in person and/or show support with signs etc. See instructions below on how to testify.
