Kaka‘ako Makai: OHA focusing on master plan

HONOLULU (Aug. 7, 2014) – The Office of Hawaiian Affairs has announced that it is accepting proposals for help with drawing up a master plan that sets out a vision for 30 acres in Kaka‘ako Makai over the next 20 years.

The deadline for proposals is 3 p.m., Friday, Sept. 12, 2014.  OHA expects to award a contract by Sept. 30, 2014. During the master planning for Kaka‘ako Makai, OHA also intends to actively seek input from the Hawaiian community.

The proposals come about two years after OHA acquired the 30 acres valued at an estimated $200 million from the state in a deal meant to resolve a dispute that dates back to when the agency was formed in 1978.

The master plan for the nine parcels that make up the 30 acres fits into OHA’s strategic priority to be able to use the land to generate revenue that could support the agency’s efforts to fund community-based programs aimed at improving conditions for Native Hawaiians.

“Our goal is to move aggressively toward realizing the longer-term vision for Kaka‘ako Makai,” said OHA Ka Pohana and CEO Kamana‘opono Crabbe. “We look forward to encouraging collaboration regarding this important goal.”
