“We are very pleased the governor has released these funds, as the health and safety of all residents is our number one priority,” said Smart. She said Ka`u’s 6,500 people, living on more than 900 square miles, lack adequate emergency shelter space. Smart said the gym and shelter will not only protect residents during natural disasters but also promote community resilience and aid in post-disaster recovery.
The gym and shelter will be built on the grounds of Ka`u High School. Several residents have asked the county to consider a design that would fit in with the historic buildings on the campus and in the town.
