North Shore Plans on Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi
Hale‘iwa Store Lots is part of the Kamehameha Schools’ North Shore Master Plan that began in 2006 and was completed in March 2008, following significant input and consultation with the community and public agencies. In fact, more than 30 community groups, including kūpuna (elders), local farmers, business owners, community associations, schools and churches chimed in to help mold the future vision of this community, located on the North Shore of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi.
Kamehameha Schools owns approximately 26,000 acres of land in the Waialua district. As such, its kuleana (responsibility) to care for these lands and people into perpetuity is taken seriously. The plan for the North Shore of Oʻahu calls for the implementation of seven catalyst projects:
- Loko Ea Fishpond Restoration
- Agricultural Water System Improvements
- Renewable Energy Development
- Matsumoto Area Redevelopment (Today’s Hale‘iwa Store Lots)
- Hale‘iwa Town Center Commercial Development
- Hale‘iwa Residential Village and Outlying Residential Development
- Sustainability Institute
The completion of Hale‘iwa Store Lots in 2015 was a significant milestone for the Kamehameha Schools North Shore Plan. The highly visible, reinvigorated retail area serves as an important hub for the community. The new and improved structures, sidewalks and open spaces are a source of pride for all who call the North Shore of Oahʻu and Hawaiʻi home and a treat for those who visit.
