ELEELE — Kauai Habitat for Humanity celebrated the groundbreaking for 59 buildable lots at the Phase IIB of the Eleele Iluna subdivision.
The blessing and groundbreaking for infrastructure work, including water and sewer lines, and road work, sets the stage for allocation to families.
Stephen Spears, executive director for Kauai Habitat for Humanity, said the allocations should be ready by summer with construction work on homes to start by the end of the year.
The Eleele Iluna project will eventually provide 107 affordable housing units to families with the first dozen families already occupying the first phase.
“I applaud Kauai Habitat for providing hardworking families with the tools they need to become proud homeowners,” said Gov. David Ige. “Your self-help model empowers people by giving them the opportunity to build and own their own home.”
