Great Lawn talk story lands on Facebook

Dear Editor,

We are happy to announce the latest tool on our quest to educate the broader public about the possible development of the last open space in the opening of Maunalua.

This land has been called “The Great Lawn” and also Kuapa. Hawaiians knew it as Keahupua O Maunalua.

If you are on Facebook, please go to and “like” our page. We will be sharing history, facts, information, updates, photos, petitions and much more. Plus, we welcome you to share your photos and stories about our beautiful Maunalua Bay area. Please feel free to share this with those on your email and Facebook lists.

We have discovered that there are residents in East Oahu who are not aware of this issue. The more we talk with those in the community, the more we see opposition to another development on a commercial scale.

We are thankful that our elected officials (from this and neighboring areas) equally support the Hawaii Kai Neighborhood Board’s position, which opposes building a new development on the preservation land across from Maunalua Bay.

This position clearly reflects good planning principles as documented in our East Honolulu Sustainable Plan.

Mahalo nui,

Livable Hawaii Kai Hui
