Help shape Kakaako Makai’s future

If you don’t participate, you don’t earn the right to gripe.

The Hawaii Community Development Authority is hosting a public workshop from 4 to 8 p.m. tonight at the Hawaii Convention Center, an opportunity for the public to help draft a master plan for the property, which has seen several failed plans over the years.
