West Oahu community project moving forward

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - D.R. Horton-Schuler division's Ho'opili project is moving forward.

A motion hearing was held Thursday with the state Land Use Commission.

Back in 2009, the LUC ruled the project was deficient and asked that a phasing plan be included.

On Thursday, the LUC found the project did include a phasing plan, and now the commission will now continue to hear about the project.

Dozens of supporters came out to rally for the decision.

"Ho'opili's going to pump $4.6 billion into the economy and these guys want to get back to work. That's what it's all about," D.R. Horton-Schuler Homes Division vice president Cameron Nekota said.

The project will create a green, all-encompassing community in west Oahu.

It will incorporate sustainable features and enable residents to live, work, shop, play and learn.
