The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) will hold two community meetings to discuss a proposal to set aside hundreds of acres near Akaka Falls for subsistence agriculture plots. The first meeting will be held Monday (23 October 2017), 7 p.m., at the Honomu Gym. The second meeting will be held Tuesday (24 October 2017), 7 p.m. at the Keaukaha Elementary School cafeteria.
