Residents rally against Kakaako development

A group of concerned citizens marched through Honolulu on Wednesday in an effort to save Kakaako.

The group Kakaako United marched to the State Capitol where they held a rally to voice their concerns about the proposed developments in the area.

“The 37 high-rises that are planned for this area is an abomination and it’s not following plans,” said Sharon Moriwaki of Kakaako United.

“We believe we are being responsive and we’re working to hear, listen, and act on what the community has to say,” Hawaii Community Development Authority Executive Director Anthony Ching said.

The HCDA will hold a hearing at the State Capitol on Feb. 8 regarding Kakaako development.

They invite the public to attend.
