(BIVN) – Area residents and concerned citizens join Hawaii County officials and the Hawaii Public Housing Authority in planning a future for the vacant Lanakila Homes. The group toured the unoccupied neighborhood and discussed ideas for saving the structures at a low cost. The units are in need of rehabilitation if they are to serve as public housing for the Big Island’s large number of families in need.
