DLNR has approved a proposal by a landowner in the Kapoho area to restore an old, deteriorated fishpond in Kapoho. This is a 4.3 acre fishpond that was built sometime before 1893 and maintained until the mid-1900s. However, in recent years, the pond has fallen into disrepair. His proposal was to restore the pond it about a foot above the high-tide mark and leaving it ungated as a no-fishing zone. Of course, traditional, cultural, and religious practices in the area would still be allowed under the PASH (Public Access to Shoreline in Hawaii) laws. The owner still has to submit a preservation plan to DLNR’s State Historic Preservation Division. He’ll also have to submit preservation plans and consult with the Division of Aquatic Resources to stop or at least minimize the spread of invasive algae.

I am so looking at the future of the Big Island as the place to be, buy, live, and explore. High snow covered mountains, hot lava flows, arts and culture. Checking out recent rags that are predicting things to turn around in our real estate market as soon as August of this year. Big Island Economy Forecast I am inspired and love living and working here.
I want to talk to everyone about the things like VOG, Surfing, Fishing, Snorkling, catchment, property values, you name it and lets talk about it. Real estate prices are right again.
I live in Hilo, and also own property in Kapoho and Nanawale.For some basic and specific info on those places, fell free to visit my websiteAloha Coast Realty When I bought my first home here on Wainaku St in Hilo in 2000, everyone said BAD AREA….Crime was the reason. They had a drive by shooting six years ago I was told. I am from Birmingham Alabama, and drive by was weekly. Crime is relative and this is the safest place I have ever been. No drive by has happend here since I moved here. Same for Nanawale in the Puna area. Lived there three years and still have a house there. A great place to live and a wonderful value. Great Practical homes under 200k, and some on oversized lots for under 150k. Close to Hot Ponds, Tide Pools, and short drive to active lava flows that excite me and was the main drive for me to move here. Lets talk and if you come, I will take you on a real estate tour of some of the most incredible places to be, play, buy, and see..
The primary of this blog is Hilo, so hit me up and I will tell you everything I know. Tell me the things that are of interest and I will get that on this blog. This is not about me or to try to sell you anything. So jump in, the water is fine, and lets have some fun.

The Tribune-Herald reported today (sorry, that link will probably only be good for a couple of weeks) that the County Council had approved funds to pay for a part-time “visitor access manager” to help educate people about the tidepools. Of course, not many people realize that the Vacationland Hawaii Community Association has been paying for port-a-potties and a guard/educator down there for the last year or so. Its great that the County is helping out.
