Welcome to the `Āina Haina Community Association
If you are new to this area, e komo mai and please be sure to join the AHCA to help preserve a beautiful, safe and thriving `Āina Haina. Approximately forty percent of households in the community are members who elect an all-volunteer Board of Directors each year at the `Āina Haina Community Association General Meeting. All Directors live in our community -- some for generations.
During each program year spanning July 1 to June 30, the Board of Directors is tasked with ensuring that each tenet of the AHCA charter is upheld:
1. to promote the general welfare of the `Āina Haina area and its residents
2. to foster a positive community spirit and
3. to take informed action when necessary on community problems

Older Hao Devolpment Reports and History:
October 2, 2012
Residences at Aina Haina LLC, owned by Jeff Stone, filed for permits to build two, two-story, single-family homes on the 9.5 acre parcel (TMK 36024001) located at 1031 Hao St. Although this is a significant downsizing from the original 2007 permits attempted for an 11-home subdivision, AHCA and residents throughout the community still share grave concerns about building on such steep slopes; the potential impact to homes below the site; the impacts of prolonged and complex construction on neighbors; and environmental impacts to surrounding preservation land where it is believed that such rare species as the Elepaio are making a comeback from the brink of extinction.
