Mo`omomi-Anahaki Protection in the Works
DHHL to host two beneficiary meetings.
Department of Hawaii Home Lands News Release
The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) is considering re-designating Mo`omomi-Anahaki as a “Special District,” which would protect resources, provide stewardship opportunities and preserve the unique sense of place.
Mo`omomi-Anahaki current land use designation is “General Agriculture,” but at a beneficiary meeting in July it was clear the community is concerned about the potential for wind turbine development there.
DHHL will host two meetings to discuss the re-designation. The first will seek beneficiary input on land use and is scheduled for Oct. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lanikeha Community Center. The second meeting, where beneficiaries can review the proposal and provide feedback before it is sent to the Hawaiian Homes Commission, is scheduled for Nov. 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lanikeha Community Center.
