HAWAIIAN HOMES’ PURCHASE OF 40 houselots in Discovery Harbour has not gone well, and only one house has been built. Anna Cariaga, who met with commissioners yesterday, said construction is too expensive and Hawaiians who live a rural life of ranching, farming, hunting and fishing are hesitant to move into a subdivision with restrictions on what can be in the yards, hanging out clothes to dry and other attempts to upscale the community.
GEOTHERMAL FOR KA`U was also discussed at the Hawaiian Homes meeting, with emphasis on Native Hawaiians being the beneficiaries of such alternative energy projects. Thousands of Hawaiian Home acres in Ka`u are in the South Point, Kalae, area.
