Waianae Coast Emergency Access Road (WCEAR) Update: Mtgs on 03/14, 04/05, and 04/19

The potential WCEAR extension is an on-going proposal being worked on by elected officials, the City, DHHL, HPD, area residents, and others. Currently, routes between Helelua St. and the Nanakuli Homestead, as well as between Nanakuli Ave. and Piliokahi Ave., are the next two pieces that would give the largest impact. 

We are working to find the best solution. The hope is that a route can be found without having to relocate any homes or DHHL lessees.

The public is invited to attend meetings hosted by the Ahupua`a o Nanakuli Homestead group regarding the WCEAR. The next meeting is on 03/14/16. Councilwoman Pine plans to attend. The meetings occur every 2nd Monday at 7pm at Ka Waihona o ka Na`auao public charter school cafeteria.

Also, Peter Hirai, the Deputy Director of the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Emergency Management (DEM) will present a 20 minute update on the WCEAR to the Waianae Neighborhood Board on Tuesday, April 5 at 7:00pm at Waianae District Park. (Note: DOT will also be presenting regarding the contra flow project in Nanakuli at that same meeting). 

DEM will also be presenting a WCEAR update at the Nanakuli-Maili Neighborhood Board on Tuesday, April 19 at 7:00pm at Nanaikapono Elementary School.
