Councilmember Pine and Greg Peterson (resident of Villages of Kapolei), who attended the Council’s public hearing and helped illustrate the need for road maintenance in Kapolei.
Councilmember Pine is proud to announce that she has secured funding to pave the roads in the Villages of Kapolei. Residents have expressed their frustrations about the decades of inaction due to the City and the State disagreeing about who should fix these roads.

This work includes repaving and repairing road hazards as necessary. These specific streets include:
- Streets within the Villages of Kapolei, including streets within the Kumuiki, Aeloa, Aeloa Terrace, Villas at Aeloa, Senior Residence at Kapolei, Senior Residence at Kapolei 2, Malanai, Malanai Iki, Kekuilani Palms, Kekuilani Villas, Kekuilani Courts, Kekuilani Gardens, Makalii II, Iwalani, Makalii, Kulalani Village, Nohona at Kapolei, Pae Ko Gardens, Kealakai at Kapolei, Malu’Ohai, Villas at Maluohai, Kapolei Ho’Olimalima, Kapolei Kai, Kaupe’a, Nohona II at Kapolei, and Nohona III at Kapolei subdivisions between Farrington Highway and Kapolei Parkway;
- Kamokila Boulevard, between Manawai Street and Roosevelt Avenue; and
