International School Proposed For Hau‘ula
Comments are due by today (March 25) on a minor conditional-use permit to allow an international school campus on 18.5 acres of ag-zoned land in Hau‘ula.
Asia Pacific Educational Foundation, with a physical address in Anaheim, Calif., reportedly bought the AG-2 parcel last July to develop an elementary, middle and high school. The land fronts 54-230 Kamehameha Hwy. between Ikea Loop and Imua Place, and extends mauka.
The city Department of Planning and Permitting requests written comments; a hearing has yet to be determined. The application from APEF (and local agent Tom Schnell of PBR Hawaii) describes classrooms, dormitories, offices, dean’s and caretaker homes, teacher studios, a gym, pool, produce gardens and nurseries, offstreet parking and support infrastructure.
Contact planner Joette Yago at 768-8034 or email@example.com, and refer to File No. 2015/CUP-6.
The APEF mission is to promote international education in the region via intensive ESL training, Christian mission work, student exchanges and more.
Rotary Club of Honolulu members came to the Windward side in January to install new flooring and paint to the cabins at YWCA’s Camp Kokokahi. The volunteer project not only enhanced the Kaneohe facility’s programs for women and girls, but also earned the club a $10,000 Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Friends grant, which the Rotarians will give to Waikiki Health Center.
