The potential WCEAR extension is an on-going proposal being worked on by elected officials, the City, DHHL, HPD, area residents, and others. Currently, routes between Helelua St. and the Nanakuli Homestead, as well as between Nanakuli Ave. and Piliokahi Ave., are the next two pieces that would give the largest impact. We are working to find the best solution, and the public is invited to attend meetings hosted by the Ahupua`a o Nanakuli Homestead group regarding this subject. The meetings occur every 2nd Monday at 7pm at Ka Waihona o ka Na`auao public charter school cafeteria.
