"Green is looking at unused government land, with Hawai‘i’s emergency proclamation speeding expected $2-$4 million dollar infrastructure upgrades.

"If you get the land, you can move within 4-6 months.  We are already working with a private entity called Home Aid which will bring a lot of extra resources.  They’re a large amalgamation of all of the developers who are quite generous, Castle and Cooke and other developers, they want to give back. I just got out of a major meeting with state leaders, City and County leaders, Attorney General, deputies, all to get on the same page, and each to their own."" -Lt. Lt. Governor Josh Green "We’re hoping for a piece of land, a small parcel, where we can start building a community and building relationships with that community." -John Kaulupali
