In November 2017 Kauai Habitat for Humanity purchased 6.5 acres of land in Waimea from Kikiaola Land Co. Ltd. Realizing the growing need for housing and increased density, Kauai Habitat began a partnership with the County of Kauai Housing Agency and the Ahe Group. The joint project in Waimea will provide a much-needed mix of 35 multi-family rental units to be developed by the Ahe Group and 32 single family for sale units to be developed by Kauai Habitat.
A public meeting was held on June 13, 2018, in Waimea to offer information on the proposed design and project details. Public input was requested on a draft environmental assessment prepared for the project.
The subdivision project received final approval in May 2019. Infrastructure work is underway and is expected to be completed by December 2020. Construction of homes is scheduled to begin in the Spring of 2021. An announcement of the details of the offering for this housing opportunity will be issued by Fall 2020.
