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.
