(BIVN) – The Department of Hawaiian Home met with the community in Honomū Gym on Monday evening, to talk about a plan to create a the first-of-its-kind, Subsistence Agriculture Homestead Lease on 766 acres of land above town.
The consultation is a first step. Some residents have concerns about the impacts the project might have on their way of life in the small, plantation village.
