Council members eye new park in Hawi

By 67AM KPUA News

HILO, Hawaii (AP) A Hawai`i County Council Committee is supporting a proposal to turn nearly an acre of private property in Hawi into a community park. Hawi residents told the committee the grass lot has been a community gathering place for years.
Private citizens own the lot near the intersection of Akoni Pule Highway and Hawi Road.

But David and Shelly Lucas of Holualoa say they're happy to sell the land to the county for the benefit of Hawi residents and scratch their development plans.

County property manager Ken Van Bergen says the purchase price would be determined by a third party appraisal. The county last assessed the lot at nearly $516,000. The full council would need to approve the land purchase for it to go forward.
