On Monday, March 5th, members of the community are invited to attend this open meeting to talk about Kalani's proposed Village Center.

The village center was originally proposed by the county to be in Seaview, but this location was rejected by Seaview residents. Kalani has since been asked to explore the possibility of providing the land and oversight for this important resource for our community, which could contain services such as a volunteer fire department, health clinic, kupuna center, and farmer's co-op grocery.
 
Discussions have covered topics such as the suitability of Kalani as a location and overseer, the ownership structure of the village center, and what the village center would provide.
 
A steering committee of community leaders has been established, including Kevin Horton of Seaview, Graham Ellis of Bellyacres/SPACE, Kathy Elder of Kehena, Ron Nickles of Puna Palisades, and Richard Koob of Kalani.
 
The village center steering committee invites the community to join us in a meeting scheduled for Monday, March 5th at Kalani Hale Aloha, starting at 5:00pm. At this meeting, we will explore options/locations for the village center, and continue to develop the best possible governance structure to ensure the village center meets the needs of our community. All are welcome, and we are particularly grateful for hana lima (helping hands).  Mahalo!
