Too many of Hawaiʻi’s working people endure long commutes to jobs. This leaves less time to enjoy family and friends and reduces opportunities to get outside and connect with each other.
Kamehameha Schools and Stanford Carr Development believe the successful lessons of Kaka’ako can be applied to other local communities. They want to create communities that include affordable, high quality homes, access to healthcare, green spaces, collaboration places and especially more walking and less driving!
Communities and neighborhoods created to increase the time we spend with loved ones enhance our quality of life and greatly increases our capacity to take care of ourselves and each other. That is the vision of Our Kakaʻako and Beyond.
