The Growing Waianae Center

It has been too long goofed up by the "Keep the Country, Country" of the last century. There are many that are thinking for the good and enjoyment of the citizens of this community. The most basic is the long time expression, "I coulda been home in 20 minutes."  It takes me 20 minutes to get out of the parking area in Honolulu. Let's leave Honolulu as much as we can - out of it.

 "Don't lose hope, when the sun goes down, look up,
the stars will come out."

Downtown Waianae is on its way. The far end south is the Bus Transit Center, and they are very good with the local buses, just made perfect for the local community. We just don't know for how long they are going to last. (The Present Rail Party, Auwe!)

Right next to it and going North are three solid anchors. Long's Drug Store, American Bank and City Mill along with some good two story stuff. Some space in between and we have Tamura Super Market, First Hawaiian Bank and the Post Office. And we could not get photos of the others. The photographers make it difficult if not impossible. They don't sell anything they only rent. Copyright or something.

Tamura seems to kokua very well with the locals. They seem to know
that if thousands want to send a photo to their friends or relatives.
It is OK. - free Public Relations. They Akamai.

With Pokai Bay on the beach and a good fill in of buildings between or slightly in back, Two Story buildings, 20, 30 units for stores, office space and light industry, that will solidify a perfect downtown Waianae. People would be coming from Kapolei now that the Rail Disaster is taking their second city away from them.

Raised flower beds are attractive, long lasting and affordable. There seems to be a lot of them on the Waianae Coast. Is there a reason? The West Coast is a lot dryer than the East Coast but there are a lot of ways to get water here. Talk about underdeveloped nations, this is it.

We have a ways to go, but together we can make it. Apparently more people are becoming aware that there is a West Coast and there a West Coast Swing? Later on a small Industrial Park back in the Valley. Could be cheaper "Ag Land" and with a job there, even minimum wage, "I coulda been home in 20 minutes." Talk about living in Paradise.

Pub's Side Note: You want to see what a real Hawaiian Dance Blog looks like, tune in to Town Dancer blog of today.
