“I understand this is an inconvenience for our community, but this work is necessary to improve the Waikapu Park Complex to better serve our residents,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “Mahalo to our residents for their patience and understanding.”
The project will include improvements to and expansion of the existing community center building for ADA accessibility compliance and the addition of two covered lanai. Site work improvements include alterations to the existing parking and replacing the ballfield irrigation system, along with utilities improvements at the driveway connection to Waiko Road.
