COME ON A WALKING TOUR OF KAKAAKO

Kakaako, one of the most vital and most "studied" areas in the State is finally about to undergo a major facelift. The State's Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA), which has been working for two years on alternative plans and methods of implementation, will be presenting the Legislature with a completed plan next year.

Sandwiched between the downtown and Ala Moana-Waikiki areas, Kakaako has long been deemed an "underutilized" area, a "sleeping giant." Over the years commercial, industrial and residential uses have evolved haphazardly with little or no attention to continuity of growth, compatibility of uses, or concern for creating a pleasant place for people to live and work.

In order to get a feeling for this diverse area, we've planned a guided tour. We'll meet at the HCDA office for a 20 minute briefing and a look at some key maps. (There is some parking available, but try to carpool.) Then we will proceed, by van and on foot, to see "the real Kakaako." Small fix-it shops, mini industries, garment manufacturing, lunch stands, "mom and pop" stores, residences, both small ones tucked out of sight and high rises, will be noted on the tour.

At noon we'll end up at Point Panic, the makai boundary of Kakaako, for lunch. Bring your own brown bag; drinks will be provided. HCDA staffers who will be our guides will answer questions during lunch.

The tour should be interesting, informative, good exercise, and good fun. Please telephone the office (531-7448) or Helen Griffin (373-1879) by Nov. 15 for reservations. We must know how many will be joining us. Guests are welcome.

HELP! DO YOU HAVE A VW OR OTHER VAN OR DO YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO HAS ONE? WE'LL NEED A COUPLE FOR THE WALKING TOUR (so we won't have to walk so much). CALL HELEN G.
