Kanoelehua Industrial Area and Banyan Drive have had studies commissioned by the State of Hawai’i Department of Land and Natural Resources for future planning in the area.

The Banyan Drive Working Group’s efforts to address the future of Banyan Drive include the understanding of conditions, limitations, and opportunities for formulation or revitalization strategies.

Management effectiveness of the DLNR’s Kanoelehua lands is the main aim of the Kanoelehua planning study, including the understanding of conditions, limitations, and opportunities for effective management of the lands.
