Waikiki Walk Two

League members and other community groups carrying signs and banners walked along Kalakaua Avenue July 14. The demonstration was held to express citizens' dismay at the decision of the State's Waikiki Convention Center Authority to select Herbert Horita as developer of a convention center at the International Market Place.

The Horita plan, which includes hotel rooms, condo units and a shopping center, will violate current height regulations by an extra 140 feet and will be 5-1/2 times the allowed density. Leaguers carried brightly painted slogans that expressed concern for the adverse effect all that concrete will have on Waikiki.

At the conclusion of the walk the band of marchers returned to the bandstand to listen to talks given by interested citizens and politicians.
