By Sandra Wang, Waikele
Waikele is a master planned community on the Leeward side of Oahu that was developed by the Amfac Corporation back in 1991. So it has only been about 26 years in its evolution. This development project began with the construction of two multi-family complexes and one single -family subdivision. Today more than half of its residents have been born there so many may already feel Waikelians.

Blogger's Law Number 41D:
 "When blogging at home, the lighter the rug the more apt a dropped
peanut butter and jelly sandwich will land face down."

Today, the Waikele Community Association stands as one of the premier planned bedroom communities in the State of Hawaii. Waikele now has 12 multi-family town home complexes and 9 single-family subdivisions. In addition to these 2937 homes, the Waikele community also has two privately owned shopping centers, a fire station, elementary school, championship golf course, and two parks which are maintained by the City and County of Honolulu. Sadly, only one industrial park in the area was ever planned but voted down by the Present Rail Party. And "I coulda been home in twenty minutes."

Waikele is well known for its lush green landscaping and the 58 natural gas lamps that are displayed at the entrances of Lumiaina and Lumiauau Street. The shopping center is one of the most beautiful and best designed on this Island. However, the most distinct signature feature of this award winning community is the "lollipop" shaped banyan trees that line the boundary with Kamehameha Highway. Everybody groans that there is no sign of any Community Center where there could exist the possibility of social dancing. But not much hope because every bit of city money has go for the Rail Disaster.

"Social Dancers eventually realize that mistakes are made
for learning not repeating."

Pub's Side Note: Any dance news from Waikele, please email and I will  post and share it with our reader/dancers and we will all be happy.
