At the June meeting of the Nanakuli-Maili Neighborhood Board Danny Wyatt described the new location for the Leeward Community College (LCC) Waianae Moku, previously known as LCC Waianae/Nanakuli Learning Center. Beginning in August 2017 the college will be at 87-380 Kula’aupuni Street in Waianae, the area commonly known as Maili. There will be two parking lots for students while there is a plan for employee parking in the back of the school.  Because the campus is located next to Maili Elementary School, the LCC Moku will start classes later than the school in order to prevent traffic problems.  There are plans to expand the campus by adding more classrooms, a science room, counselor offices, a student center, and bathrooms.  Food and beverages will be available at the Uluwehi Cafe and the Pearl Restaurant.

Counseling, application, and testing services are available temporarily at Waianae High School, rooms P-17, P-18,  and B-104 until the opening of the new location.  Services are available Monday through Thursday, 9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.  Phone 454-4702 for more information.

The next meeting for the Nanakuli-Maili Neighborhood Board will be on Tuesday, July 18, 2017, at the Ka Waihona O Ka Na’auao PCS Cafeteria, 89-195 Farrington Highway, Waianae, at 7:00 P.M. – 9:30 P.M.  The board’s agenda includes:

  • Update on Hawaii Department of Transportation  projects along Farrington Highway, presented by Ed Sniffen, Deputy Director of  Highways Division.
  • Homeless programs update by Scott Morishige, Governor Ige’s Coordinator on Homelessness.

The general public is invited to attend the meeting and participate in the discussion.
