Reminder: All District 17 offices will be open half day on Wednesday, December 30, 2015, and closed all day on Thursday, December 31, 2015, and Friday, January 1, 2016. Have a safe and happy New Years!
We are proud to report that yesterday, the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled in favor of D.R. Horton’s $4.6B Hoopili project. D.R. Horton hopes to start construction in 2016. In addition to single and multi family homes, Hoopili would also include commercial and light industrial space, community facilities, schools, parks and open space, facilities, commercial farming and utilities.
D.R. Horton has also gifted the Hawaiian Humane Society and the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center for new West Oahu campuses.
We would like to extend a warm aloha for everyone’s hard work and dedication in bringing this project to fruition. Hoopili will bring in more work for our members as well as provide jobs and homes for the local people in the upcoming years.
On December 8, 2015, Dan Reding, President of the Operating Engineers Local Union No. 3, swore in the newest members of District 17. The swearing in of new members is a symbolic beginning to one joining Local 3 and one of the key elements in the lifelong retention of that member.
Congratulations to all. We are proud to officially have you on board!
