The county’s Disaster Recovery Division and County Council District 4 will host a quarterly Revitalize Puna community activation in person on Monday, April 11, at Sure Foundation Church in Kea‘au. This will be the fourth activation convened since the series launched in June 2021.

The theme of the fourth Revitalize Puna event is “Seeing is Believing.”
According to a press release, the county will share how resident mana‘o has shaped decision-making and project plans. Presentations will include county updates on infrastructure investments such as roads, water, parks and a report back on Revitalize Pohoiki, a placemaking plan and a roadmap for the restoration and stewardship of Isaac Kepo‘okalani Hale Park.
In addition, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources will be on hand to provide a status update on the restoration of the boat ramp at Pohoiki.
