OHA and Kaka‘ako Makai

News Release from OHA February 12, 2014

In 1978 the people of Hawaiʻi voted to create the Office of Hawaiian Affairs to promote and protect the rights of Native Hawaiians, the first peoples of Hawaiʻi. Hawaiʻi’s constitution established OHA’s right to a pro rata portion of the public land trust, however, many issues relating to the fair allocation of the public land trust remained unresolved and disputed for nearly 30 years.

In 2012, OHA and the state agreed to settle the state’s past due public land trust revenue debt by conveying to OHA 30 acres of land in Kakaʻako Makai, with an appraised land value of approximately $200 million.

Accordingly, OHA is exploring all options to maximize our revenue generating opportunities to best serve our beneficiaries.

As such, OHA is supporting SB3122 and HB2554 for the best interests of their beneficiaries.

OHA’s Commitment

• OHA is not seeking to do anything along the Kewalo waterfront that is not currently allowed.

• OHA’s Board of Trustees does not intend to develop residential uses along the Kewalo waterfront.

OHA’s Unique Role as a Developer

• OHA has been fighting from its inception to support appropriate safeguards to ensure responsible development. We are on record as advocates of sustainable growth; the preservation of natural and cultural resources; and the perpetuation of traditional and customary practices.

•OHA understands better than any other developer the impacts of irresponsible development. Hawaiians have been victims and suffered most from the consequences of reckless development.

•OHA seeks to find the highest point at which the culturally rich use of our Kakaʻako Makai lands intersects with revenue generating use of the parcels.

• OHA is not seeking to do anything along the Kewalo waterfront that is not currently allowed. OHA’s Board of Trustees does not intend to develop residential uses along the Kewalo waterfront.OHA is not seeking to do anything along the Kewalo waterfront that is not currently allowed.
