This will be the first of three public meetings to determine what recreational activities and land uses are appropriate for the regional park to be built on state-owned land two miles north of Kailua-Kona. In January 2011, Governor Neil Abercrombie issued an executive order setting aside the vacant land for public purposes and placing it under the County of Hawai‘i’s control.

The goal of the meetings is to generate and implement a comprehensive master plan that will guide development of the regional park for the next 20 years.
