HONOLULU (AP) - A real estate development company is proposing a zip line over an Aiea neighborhood.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Monday the estimated $1 million project would be the second zip line operation on Oahu, in an industry catered to tourists that has grown more rapidly on the outer islands.

An affiliate of Towne Development of Hawaii Inc. has filed a draft environmental assessment with the state. Plans call for seven pairs of zip lines in forested ridges above Waimalu's Royal Summit neighborhood.

The company says the business will be unseen and unheard from homes. But some area residents fear it will cause more traffic.

The company also plans to remove invasive plant species and increase native plants.
