Come to support the next clean-up and beautification of the People's Path!

What: Clean-up and Beautification of People's Path
When: January 16, 2010; 7:30-11:30am
Where: Maili Point (meet across from Kaukama Road)
Who: Sponsored by Women of Wai`anae, AlohaCare, Rep. Maile Shimabukuro, Nani O Wai`anae, and others
Why: Our goal is to create a pathway along the Wai`anae Coast

For more information, contact: or call 696-4677

Background information:
Last year, Maile and her mother met with Department of Transportation (DOT) officials regarding the planned bikeway for the Wai`anae Coast, which ends at Lualualei Naval Road. They inquired about whether the State would allow the community to extend the pathway around Maili Point, and eventually along the entire Wai`anae Coast. (See posting re: Nani O Waianae April 26 Beach Clean-Up for more information on the "People's Path.") This is the map and response Maile received from DOT. Click on the map to the right for a full view; for a blow-up of the bikeway, click on the map below.

I'm still looking into your questions regarding the Leeward Bikeway and Leeward Bikeway extension, but wanted to send you our contact information along with the map of the Leeward Bikeway. Please note that this is not the most current map of the Leeward Bikeway. It should, however, still be able to give you a general idea of where the bike path will be located...
