We support maintaining Wai‘anae as a rural community and agricultural center for O‘ahu. That is why we oppose the industrialization of our agricultural lands, including the industrial park proposed for the Tropic Lands parcel in Lualualei Valley.

Today, despite overwhelming community support for protecting local farm lands, developers are pushing Honolulu Councilmembers to approve a “purple spot,” a new industrial zone in the middle of green Lualualei Valley. This industrial zone would urbanize precious agricultural lands, paving the way for industrial parks, landfills, and other industrial land uses.

Remove the Purple Spot!

The plan must be approved by the Council for the City and County of Honolulu before it becomes law. We are asking Councilmembers to reject the “purple spot” and protect agricultural lands throughout the Wai‘anae Coast.

Become a spot remover! You can sign this petition to tell Councilmembers NO to more loss of precious rural agricultural lands! And NO to government that serves wealthy developers over the interests of local families and communities!

I live near here. The push to "develop" ag land into houses or industry is very intense. It is shortsighted. 80% of the food eatten here is imported. The native population fed itself with the land that is here. We can too. But, off island developers only want the profits with no long range planning.
