KEALAKEKUA BAY, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Department of Land and Natural Resources is seeking community input on the preliminary alternatives for the management and development of Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park on the Big Island.
A community meeting will be held on Saturday, January 30 at Konawaena Elementary School. An open house will begin from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Then a discussion session will be held until 4 p.m.
The findings of studies conducted for the planning will be shared, along with the alternatives that address public use, management of important resources, and proposed facilities.
As one of the most culturally and historically significant places in Hawaii, state officials are aiming to find a balance between the preservation of cultural values and historical sites with the recreational use of the park, especially the very popular Kealakekua Bay.
