Aloha and welcome to the IMUA MAUNALUA online press room.
IMUA MAUNALUA is a community-based marine planning project for the future of Maunalua Bay. The project is being convened by a consortium of organizations: Malama Maunalua, Polynesian Voyaging Society, Conservation International– Hawaii, The Nature Conservancy, Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, and Hawaii Kai Chamber of Commerce.
IMUA MAUNALUA will involve a two-year planning process with a third year of implementation. The planning process seeks community input from every sector that has a stake in the Bay to build consensus and develop recommendations for a comprehensive strategy to improve the future of Maunalua Bay.
The project addresses the 6.5 square miles of Maunalua Bay and the surrounding region, from Kūpikipiki‘ō (Black Point) to Kawaihoa (Portlock Point). The Maunalua Bay region is home to 60,000 residents.
