Kaka‘ako Makai


Governor Neil Abercrombie made history on April 11, 2012 by signing into law a bill that transfers 10 land parcels in Kakaʻako Makai to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) in order to settle ceded land revenue claims that date back to 1978. Senator Daniel Akaka, the OHA Board of Trustees and executive team, Hawaiian Home Lands Commissioners, legislators and numerous Hawaiian community leaders gathered at Washington Place for the historic bill signing ceremony.

Currently OHA is soliciting bids for work associated with the Fisherman's Wharf removal and abatement.

View the full solicitation for bids as well as the appendices here.
