City Proposing 145 Unit Affordable Housing Project In Empty Lot Next To West Loch Elderly

The City and County of Honolulu will be holding a informational meeting at the West Loch Elderly Social Room on May 20, 2019 4:30 pm to inform the residents of a plan to build a 145 unit affordable housing project on the empty lot that is south of the West Loch Elderly apartment complex. Those of us who have lived here since the beginning were told that the lot would be developed as a retail space (convenience store, dry cleaners, and so on) for the residents of West Loch Elderly and beyond. Please come out to the meeting. As a community we need to form a consensus of whether this development will be a good fit.

Concerns: How tall, How much parking (residents will use Asing Park to park if not sufficient parking), Is it really affordable? What concessions will the community gain from the developer (upgrades to park, intersection, West Loch Elderly). How will it affect traffic. Who will live there (singles, familys, a mix).

Kapolei – Ewa Blue Zones Project

 Blue Zones Hawaii Upcoming Events

Blue Zones Project is a community-wide well-being improvement initiative to help make healthy choices easier in Hawaii.

Blue Zones Project engages communities to transform local, county and statewide policy to create lasting sustainable well-being improvement. Blue Zones Project focuses on the three policy areas of built environment, food policy, and tobacco policy. Each policy area has an established target designed to build upon the good work taking place, achieve meaningful change, and recognize the scale, geographic boundaries, and other unique characteristics of Hawaii.

The Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA) has brought Blue Zones Project® to Hawaii to transform our state into an even better place to live, work, and play. To reach that goal, we’ll help residents make small changes so we can all enjoy longer, happier, and healthier lives.
Small changes can lead to big benefits for our community: lower health care costs, higher productivity, and ultimately, a better quality of life. We look forward to working together with organizations, communities, and people across the state to make well-being a priority.
