Kahuku Village Residents Angry Over Proposed Developments

(KHNL) -- Families who live in the plantation homes at Kahuku Village on Oahu's North Shore say they fear for their neighborhood.

"How can we lose the rural nature of oahu. It has to do with people's lifestyle, their quality of life," Margaret Primacio, a Kahuku Villages resident.

Florida-based Continental Pacific wants to build 18 luxury homes on ocean front property owned by the Campbell Estate.

The developer is offering to sell 70 plantation families their homes at an average price of $75,000.

"Try to do our best to allow folks who've grown up for generations in their homes to keep 'em, buy 'em for what we hope will be accepted and understood as the best price possible," said Eric Morrison of Continental Pacific.

The plan also preserves the Kahuku golf course as a community resource, but residents say the project limits beach access.

"It would be awful, it would not be country," Primacio said. "It would not be rural anymore if we give up that whole beachfront."

Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann told the people of Kakuku if they don't like this proposal to come up with another one.

However he told them not to expect the city to come to their rescue.

"I want to be clear, there is no way you can expect the city of this developer to give you a free home," Hannemann said. "It's not going to happen. It's not going to happen."
