1. Encourage Leeward residents to seek Leeward jobs;
2. Reduce traffic congestion to town;
3. Encourage better coordination with Leeward job employers and job seekers;
4. Encourage Leeward residents to buy from Leeward companies;
5. Hold job training events;
6. Improve the quality of life for Leeward residents.
