Governor releases $2.5 million for Waimea District Park Project

Governor Neil Abercrombie recently announced the release of $2.5 million in general obligation bonds for Phase 1 of 5 of the Waimea District Park project.

“I would like to thank Governor Abercrombie for releasing these bonds, enabling us to move forward with the creation of a district/regional park in Waimea” said Senator Malama Solomon, who represents District 4 (Hilo, Hamakua, Kohala, Waimea, Waikoloa and Kona). “I look forward to the completion of the Waimea District Park and to being able to provide a beautiful and safe place for our family and friends to gather, play and rejoice.”

The funding, which was appropriated in the State Budget during the 2013 Legislative Session, will go towards the initial design and engineering of a district/regional park in Waimea, South Kohala district. The first phase will include infrastructure such as road improvements, water, sewer, power, grading and construction of two multi-use fields and restroom facilities.
