(BIVN) – Planning is underway for the proposed public park in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision.
On Sunday afternoon, HPP residents got together with Hawaii County Department of Parks and Recreation officials and their consultants, SSFM International, and began developing a master plan for a new county park in their neighborhood. The three alternative layouts under consideration can be seen below.
The new park would be located on a County-owned, 20-acre parcel bordered by Kaloli Drive, 25th Avenue and 26th Avenue, and county officials say “proposed facilities being considered in the master plan include a baseball and softball field, soccer and football field, tennis courts, skate park, playground, covered play courts, and a community center.”
Residents in attendance also wondered if the plan might allow for a swimming pool or a place to house activities for seniors.
It was the first of two scheduled meetings. “The purpose of the first public meeting is to present the Department’s proposed vision, goals, and preliminary alternative plans and to gather input from the community and interested parties,” the county says. “The purpose of the second public meeting will be to present the preliminary master plan and gather any additional input.”
The next meeting will be held at the same location – the Hawaiian Paradise Park Owners Association Activity Center at 15-1570 Maku’u Drive between 16th and 17th Streets – from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Monday, February 19th. The public is invited to attend.
