The Office of Hawaiian Affairs on Thursday will hold the first in a series of statewide meetings on the future of its lands in Kakaako Makai.
The agency acquired 30 acres of land in 2012 at a value of $200 million as part of a settlement with the Public Land Trust.
Now, OHA says it wants to find a way to generate income while also incorporating three themes: Create a kipuka where Hawaiian national identity can flourish; Support a halau ola that invests in native intellectual capital and innovation; and integrate a planned community that embraces live, work and play ideas.
The following is the schedule of public meetings:
