The Waianae Moku 2030 Navigators are hosting a community economic development planning summit, Living Westside, on August 27, 2016.  The summit will bring together community leaders, business people and interested Waianae Coast residents to identify community projects that support community economic development on the Westside.

The Waianae Moku 2030 Navigators started in August 2015 in response to state and federal agencies requesting a list of community priorities they could support.  Unwilling to respond to this request without broader community involvement, the Navigators initiated a series of planning meetings to design a strategy leading to community participation and agreement on the direction and priorities our community should take.

The initial core planning team members includes representatives from the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, Waianae Coast Hawaiian Civic Clubs, the Waianae Coast and Nanakuli and Maili Neighborhood Boards, the Queen Liliuokalani Children’s Center – Waianae Unit, OLELO Community Television, various businesspeople and community residents.

Living Westside – the 2016 Community Planning Summit will take the Waianae Moku 2030 Navigators Planning Process and expand it to include the larger community.  The Navigators will present the planning process they used, share priority projects they have identified to launch in 2016, and solicit community input on proposals for projects to address community needs and aspirations, and identify priorities for 2017.

Waianae Moku 2030 Navigators is a project of the Waianae Economic Development Council.  The summit is sponsored by the Queen Lili`uokalani Children’s Center and supported by the Waianae Rotary Club.

There is no charge for Waianae Coast residents to attend the summit but attendees must register in advance to receive lunch.
