HANALEI, Hawaii (AP) - A company that wants to build luxury homes and hotel cottages in the hills above Hanalei Bay met with residents this week to hear their concerns about the project.

Ohana Real Estate Investors Vice President Eric Crispin says the company is striving to balance what's financially feasible with looking after the environment and culture.

Hayley Ham Young-Giorgio said it would break the hearts of thousands of people who live in and visit Hanalei to have multimillion-dollar homes sitting on top of the ridge.

The Garden Island newspaper reports a standing room-only crowd of more than 400 Kauai residents crammed into Hanalei School's cafeteria for the meeting on Tuesday.

Honolulu-based philanthropist and eBay founder Pierre Omidyar owns Ohana Holdings, which owns Ohana Real Estate Investors.
