HAWAII KAI (KHNL) There are concerns about whether the cabins will remain recreational or someday be turned into an oceanside resort.

Many in the community oppose vacation cabins along the pristine Ka Iwi coastline. Resident Sasha Takeuchi says, "Hawaii Kai is too overcrowded already."

Plans include large cabins and a recreation center is also on the drawing board.

Gene Ward comments, "Ka Iwi should remain in it's pristine state. Ka Iwi should remain in it's natural state."

Sasha worries if Kalanianaole highway can handle all the extra cars, "It is going to cause a lot of traffic there is only one lane going back and forth."

Sasha wants to keep this coastline as it is. "I think the people developing this are just looking to make a lot of money. I think it's not worth it to build over our preserve lands we should keep preserve."

We were unable to reach the developers

The city has until Friday to act on their request for permits
