Two Homes In One! Spacious Kalaheo Home Just Listed <img src=”image.gif” alt="just listed“/>
I’m excited about my new listing on the makai side of Kalaheo because it’s one of those homes that just don’t come along that often.  This 3 bedroom 3 bath home is largely single level and can easily be split into two separate living areas.  There is also the option to convert the huge office into a 4thbedroom.  The owners put in a solar water heater and an 8 panel photovoltaic system that is conveyed with the purchase.  It’s located in a quiet cul-de-sac on a nicely landscaped 8,629 sq ft lot.  The kitchen has been redone and there is a ton of storage space.  I love the options that this home has and it’s just so clean and tidy too.  I’ve got more information on this 2,675 sq ft. home at $795,000.  Give me a call to discuss and click here for more information: Just Listed 3727 Kikiwi

Southwest Progress Slowed Federal Aviation Administration Confirms
The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed Thursday that Southwest Airline Co.’s new service to Hawaii has been delayed due to the federal government shutdown.
Southwests next steps were to do a series of “validation flights” where they demonstrate their procedures in action as well as the training that the staff has had.  The delay is because of a lack of available aviation inspectors, which are essential in providing certification for operations, being among those furloughed. This shutdown is now heading into its fourth week.

U.S. Air Force To Do Drills At Lihue Airport This Week
If you are at the Lihue Airport this Wednesday through Monday don’t be alarmed at the number of United States Air Force personnel around you.  The Hawaii Department of Transportation stated that the Air Force will be conducting “Patriot Palm 2019” which are realistic training exercises done by the 452ndContingency Response Squadron from March Air Reserve in So. Cal.  These exercises are to establish working relations with local entities with the military capabilities in the event of a natural disaster.
You’ll see military loading and unloading military aircraft as if they were in an emergency.  Flights will continue as normal but just know that the “emergency” that you are seeing is not really happening.

Lihue Post Office To Remain Open
The Mayor of Kauai thanked Hawaii Senators Brian Schatz and Mazie Hirono and Representative Tulsi Gabbard for their efforts in keeping the historic Lihue Post Office open.  In a letter to Mayor Kawakami, the Postal Service reversed its decision to relocate the Lihue Post Office to the Lihue Carrier Annex after various public meetings, discussions, and comments were made in support to keep the Lihue Post Office at its Rice Street location.

The post office was built in 1939 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Moreover there is the “Lihue Core Mobility and Revitalization Project” which started in November of last year.  The County of Kauai was given a $15.1 million dollar grant from the US Department of Transportation.  The purpose of the project is to “improve vehicular, pedestrian, public transit, and bicycle circulation throughout the town core”.  The Lihue Post Office is located within that plan.

Haena Park To Open, But With Some Major Changes
After you drive through Princeville and then through Hanalei you used to be able to drive into the community of Haena.  This is also where you access Ke’e Beach and the trail head to the Napali Coast. After last years storms the community of Haena has been closed off and open only to residents who have been taking this time to address the over crowding and dangerous parking that happens at the end of the road.  Starting March 30th it will be open again but, new rules.

The amount of visitors that can access the park is being cut by a little more than a half to allow native plants and animals a chance to grow and thrive.  The number of people that used to go there at day was 2,000 and now it will be limited to 900.   There will be only 100 parking spots and no parking along the highway, this is going to be strictly enforced.  To park visitors will need to get an online pass for $1 per person or $5 per car, locals will be allowed in for free with no need for a reservation.

There will be a park manager and three rangers that will be enforcing the rules of the park 7 days a week.  There will be paths for people to access Ke’e Beach to help preserve the vegetation and overnight parking will be prohibited.  These changes have been a long time coming, the area had long since been completely overcrowded and there was no order.  The flooding and shut down of the north shore did not instigate these changes but they did put some fire under the implementation.
