Talk-Story About the Pahoa Plan and Party
Where can you make an impact on your community, voice your opinions, and party with food and entertainment? This Saturday, at the Pahoa Community Center, the people of Pahoa will gather to provide necessary feedback to the Steering Committee for the Pahoa Regional Town Center Plan, also known simply as the “Pahoa Plan.”
From 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on March 24, community members will be given information and a forum to voice their concerns, offer opinions, talk-story, and give suggestions. After that work is done, the party begins with refreshments from the Taste of Pahoa, and live music from the Kalapana Awa Band. Expect the entertainment to last until 6 p.m.
The Pahoa region, which includes, Hawaiian Acres, Ainaloa, HPP, Hawaiian Beaches, Nanawale Estates, Leilani Estates, Kapoho and Kalapana have begun to burst with residents, their cars, and of course traffic. The need for smart civil engineering and city planning is obvious, as this island grows bigger in population.
This free event encourages citizens to take part in a survey and feedback process integral to creating and adopting a growth plan. This plan will hopefully satisfy, the majority of the region. Various Pahoa locales, such as farmers markets, grocery stores, shopping centers and schools will encourage the passersby to take a moment and take a survey. Surveying will take place for two weeks, beginning March 31. An online survey will also be available from March 24 until April 30. For more information visit the county’s website.
The Pahoa Community Center is located at 15-2910 Puna Road in Pahoa.
