Long-Awaited Community and Cultural Center Breaks Ground in Kapolei

Kapolei Heritage CenterKAPOLEI —  The Kapolei Community Development Corporation held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Kapolei heritage Center, which will serve as a community and cultural learning center.  It will serve as a gathering place for all —  for the surrounding homestead communities and the entire Kapolei community.

Lt. Governor Shan Tsutsui delivered remarks and participated in the groundbreaking ceremony.  “This center will be a place for families to gather, foster self-sufficiency and practice the culture.  This is where children will be nurtured with Hawaii’s unique values of aloha and ohana for generations to come,” he said.

This project is a community driven effort.  For more than seven years, the KCDC and its core group of volunteers have worked tirelessly in planning for the Kapolei Heritage Center.  The State contributed $1.15M in capital improvement grant funds to finance the construction of Phase I.  KCDC plans to raise another $1.5M for Phase II.
