Dear Council Chair Anderson,

The Faith Action Units listed below are writing to urge you to help improve the strength, livability and vitality of our community by supporting the affordable Kawainui Street Apartments project in Kailua.  It doesn't seem that long ago that Kailua was a quiet beach town with many affordable homes.  That lower priced housing is being displaced forcing many long-time Kailua residents out.  

The Kawainui Street project is a step in the right direction.  With units priced for residents earning wages in line with salaries offered by local businesses the project supports our families and the environment by reducing commuting and encouraging walkable lifestyles.  This multi-family project is a natural fit for this mixed use area.

Faith Action is a 25 year Hawaii non-profit made up of local religious and non-religious organizations concerned about the well being of Hawaii's people.  We're working for the many who are finding it more difficult to remain in their home and community.

Change is happening.  People in Kailua and communities throughout the island have experienced rapid, often painful change in the last decade.  It's time to guide that change to support our people and communities.

Thank you for your service,

Keith Webster
