The Hanama`ulu Community Association (named Hanama`ulu Neigborhood Association until June 16, 2011) exists for several reasons.  We start with the obvious:  There is a great need for an association for this community of 3000.

Among HCA's concerns is the need for a Hanama`ulu Community Center.  With D. R. Horton-Schuler Division's plan to develop the Kohea Loa Project on its 50-acre "Hanama`ulu Triangle" property, which is bounded by Hanama`ulu residences, King Kaumuali`i Elementary School, Kuhio Highway, and Kapule Highway, 293 dwelling units will be added to the town's roughly 1000 existing residential units. Needless to say, the population will increase as well. The plan have been on hold, but the need for a community center continues, even with Hanama`ulu's present population.

We see a community that continues to grow beyond what the present infrastructure can support, and the community must speak out to address its needs.  What better way than a united voice through an association?

As we maintain the Web site , we cover in detail the needs of the community and HCA's efforts to call attention to and address these needs.

The first draft of the four paragraphs above was written on July 12, 2007, when the Hanama`ulu Community Association Web site was launched.  

On January 22, 2011 when the second version of the text was written, the D. R. Horton-Schuler project had not been started, but the need for a Hanama`ulu Community Center remains. Towards this end,  HCA is applying for  tax-exempt, non-profit (501 (c) (3) status with the IRS to enable the association to apply for grants from state, county, and private entities.  This is the first step for this long-term community project.

On this third revision on June 25, 2011, the project site is quiet and empty, but the need for a community center is as acute as ever.

Goals Of HCA

Please read Section 1.05 of the Bylaws.

The Hanama`ulu Community Association hopes to improve the quality of life in the community by getting residents involved in activities designed to bring the community together.  HCA hopes to articulate its goals and to expand those goals, especially through increased membership.  And as the members work together on projects, they intend to also have fun, to develop relationships and friendships, and make HCA an effective tool of Hanama`ulu Town.

Mission Of HCA

HCA's mission is to promote the interests of the association in the community and on the island of Kaua`i.   By educating the community and the general public of its goals, HCA hopes to make a difference in the quality of life in Hanama`ulu, which would improve the quality of life on Kaua`i as well.

Completed HNA Paperwork 
(Changes will be made to reflect the new name of the association)

* HNA has received its IRS Employer Identification Number, enabling the association to apply for tax-exempt, non-profit 501 c (3) status.

* The checking account is now under Hanama`ulu Neighborhood Association, instead of Hanama`ulu Town Celebration Association.
