HILO, Hawaii – A new conceptual plan to redevelop Banyan Drive envisions a vastly expanded Lili`uokalani Gardens, the popular public park once called the “Crown Jewel At The Entry Of the Crescent City”.
During Tuesday’s public meeting held to discuss the future vision, K.T. Cannon-Eger, the president of the Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens, thanked the county planners for their work to bring the resort area back to prominence, but she also shared a few concerns.
K.T. Cannon-Eger recently shared this message in regards to an upcoming opportunity to kokua the gardens.
