ABOUT US

 

What Makes Hawaii Kai Livable? Kamilo Nui Valley - It all started on April 22, 2004 with a street banner that read, "What Makes Hawaii Kai Livable" and a mission to help preserve Kamilo Nui Valley from residential development because it is outside the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB). In our efforts to protect the Valley, we realized from the many letters we received from Hawaii Kai residents, that there were too many quality of life and environmental issues that needed to be addressed so we established Livable Hawaii Kai Hui.

 

We are your friends and neighbors. We are citizens like you, with valid community concerns. We connect on issues such as traffic, congestion, aging infrastructure, zoning, and urban sprawl. We are for maintaining adequate open space and the preservation of the agricultural lots in Kamilo Nui Valley and other areas in East Honolulu. Kamilonui Valley is a natural watershed that leads out to Maunalua Bay.

The Farm Lots of Kamilo Nui Valley 

 

In the foreground, the farmer's road curves around the Spillway where rainwater flow into the Hawaii Kai Marina. Kamilo Nui Valley is a natural watershed that aides in protecting the ecosystem that filters and flows out to Maunalua Bay.

 

The Farmer’s road has provided the leaseholders with ingress and egress for over 45 yrs. The Farmer’s co-op was formed in the early 1970's when they were uprooted from the Lunalilo Home Road farmland to help pave the way for future Hawaii Kai development.

 

The Farm land is owned by Kamehameha Schools.

 

Protecting the Urban Growth Boundaries of East Honolulu is one of our goals.Kamilo Nui Valley, The Ka Iwi Coastline, and the Paiko Ridge Parcels. We have unanimous support from our Hawaii Kai community, Hawaii Kai Neighborhood Board, and our city and state officials.
