This new private LLC who recently bought the 85.72 acreages for $910.000 on July 30, 2019 is exploring the possibilities of subdividing into smaller lots.
There have been questions and chattering about proposed development on this 85.72 acres in the mauka region of Hauula, Oahu. The topography is generally very steep. City records show the following land-use designations. It would be interesting to see how these delineations are actually recorded or are they?
What about Ingress and Egress?
Developments in large acreages like these always raise foundational questions amongst the affected residents.
Questions like ingress and egress are always a big deal as many parcels are land-locked or are connected to narrow country rural roads with no side-walks or street lights meandering through rural residential neighborhoods. Many times these rural roads are already congested with traffic and parked cars. Fire trucks also cannot access some of these areas.
The city records show the address as 54-131 Halai Street. The ingress and egress is from Kamehameha Highway to Hauula Homestead Road and quickly turning left into Halai Street and then towards the mauka end of Halai Street opening into the subject property.
Hauula Homestead Road may also be another ingress or egress option for this 87 acres parcel as seen below.
As is, the property will have a hard time being subdivided.
The subdivision needs DLNR’s assistance
Ho’ala Honua said it is in the process of purchasing (or leasing?) needed extra land from the Department of Land and Natural Resources to make their subdivision ingress and egress road meet the county’s basic standard.
Other questions would be the carrying capacity, traffic congestion, drainage, water flow, and whether the Ko’olauloa Sustainable Communities Plan (KSCP) is being adhered to and being implemented. There is also the General Plan that provides diversity in land use planning for the entire Oahu.
The KSCP values, also known as “Keep The Country Country”, include preserving the view plane of open space and the Ko’olau mountain range. The Plan includes preserving the kama’aina values of low-density urbanization, protecting agricultural lands, watersheds, cultural resources, and so on.

Neighborhood Board Presentation
There was a presentation at the Ko’olauloa Neighborhood Board on August 11, 2022 starting at about the 2:15 time line. The video maps are not very clear. The sound is problematic at times too. This video is worth listening.
There appears to be 10 lots with 8 lots being proposed for residential dwellings. One of the lots goes all the way up to the tip of the mountain.
We hope to see more materials from the LLC. More to come.
