Kāpaeloa Cultural Learning Project
Bordered by the ‘Ili‘ohu subdivision and Waimea Bay, the proposed Kāpaeloa Cultural Learning Project will support the KS North Shore regional plan and projects including Loko Ea fishpond, ‘Uko‘a marsh, Kupopolo Heiau.
The proposed facilities will include an outdoor activity lawn, pavilion, dormitory structures, caretaker’s residences, a native plant garden, off-street parking, and support infrastructure.
The Kamehameha Schools Kāpaeloa Cultural Learning Project site is located on approximately 3.48 acres and will serve as a venue for Kamehameha Schools’ community stewardship programs.
As part of the North Shore Planning process and the desire to consult with the residents of the ‘Ili‘ohu subdivision who will be most impacted by this project, Kamehameha Schools has conducted numerous community meetings in order to gain community input and support of the Kāpaeloa Cultural Learning Project and its proposed plans.
The community has been supportive of these plans thus far and will continually be updated as plans progress. To view the Kāpaeloa Cultural Learning Project Environmental Assessment, click here.
