Hālawa-Luluku Interpretive Development Project (HLID) was created to help mitigate some of the adverse impacts resulting from the construction of the Interstate H-3 Highway. HLID helped facilitate community collaboration on an Interpretive Development Plan (IDP) and continues with the development of Stewardship Management Plans and implementation of select mitigation actions determined in consultation with the selected Stewards of each project area. ‘Āina Momona helped create the Luluku Stewardship Management Plan and serves as kāko‘o to the cultural practitioners leading this effort.
The Stewardship Management Plans help meet mitigation objectives identified in the IDP and guides the development of programs and activities that the Stewards will share with the community. The purpose of these plans is to create an understanding of the relationships, responsibilities, limitations, and processes to follow during implementation of proposed mitigation actions related to the project areas.
OHA is a recognized consulting agency for the overall H-3 mitigation project and acts as the project manager for HLID. Consultation includes ongoing advocacy work to ensure resources are made available to fulfill federal historic preservation mitigation requirements, state level conservation district commitments, and subsequent mitigation plans created in collaboration with impacted communities over the last two decades since HLID was created.
