“I just think this is tremendous. I did not comprehend when I came, that it would be this exciting, and this comprehensive, and this original in terms of attracting people’s attention. You certainly got mine,” said Governor Neil Abercrombie during his visit to the reWAILUKU workshop yesterday (which coincidentally used to be his Maui headquarters).
Dave Yamashita explains the reWAILUKU concept to the Governor.
“I think it’s a beautiful combination of trying to comprehend and understand and utilize existing density without being discouraged by it,” said Gov. Abercrombie.
Governor Neil Abercrombie puts dot stickers on the images that he thinks would be a good fit for Wailuku Town.
The wonderful community that has made this workshop possible!
At February’s First Friday we had a great opening reception for reWAILUKU. Great food, personalized cupcakes and live music brought the community together to share ideas!
