The newly planned Waikoloa Plaza, reports that Gary Pinkston, president of Meridian Pacific and the owner and developer of Waikoloa Plaza, has been working with the state over the last couple of years to purchase one of the parcels for the much needed Waikoloa Public Library.

Reality set in on April 24, 2019, when Gov. Ige announced the release of $1.9 million in Capital Improvement Project funds to proceed with the purchase of the 1.750 acre parcel.

“I am very grateful to the Governor for releasing these funds to purchase the land where the future Waikoloa Public Library will be built,” said Rep. David A. Tarnas. “The Waikoloa community has been working on this project for many years, led by the dedicated volunteers of the Friends of the Library—Waikoloa Region. We still have much to do and I know the Waikoloa community will continue the hard work needed for this project to succeed.”
