Total of $1.6 million to be used to buy land for adjacent parking lot
  Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – State Capital Improvement Project (CIP) funds totaling $1.6 million were released by Governor David Ige yesterday to finance land acquisition for a parking lot adjacent to Waimea Elementary and Middle School on Hawaiʻi Island

Representative David A. Tarnas, who represents District 7 where the school is located, said this is an important safety measure for students and families in the area.
"Mahalo to the Governor and the Legislature for providing these funds," said Rep. Tarnas (North Kona, North Kohala, South Kohala). "Acquiring this property is a top priority for me and the Waimea Elementary and Middle School community because it will provide a safe location for families to drop off and pick up the young students - especially on the many rainy and windy days we have in Waimea.
"I look forward to working with Parker Ranch to complete this transaction. We still need to do improvements for paving and drainage, but this is a great first step for this important project."
