Cultural consultant Aaron Mahi is being appointed to the Land Use Commission. Mahi has previously served as district representative on the Oahu Island Burial Council.

The governor is installing Oahu development executive Brian Tamamoto on the board of the Hawaii Community Development Authority, Kakaako District. Tamamoto is executive vice president of the Kobayashi Group subsidiary Resort Holdings LLC.

All four appointments are subject to state Senate approval.
