Thousands of jobs and homes for local residents

The Supreme Court approved the Koa Ridge project yesterday, clearing the way for thousands of jobs and 3500 homes for local residents and ending three long years of litigation.

Construction is anticipated to begin construction next year with the first set of homes being  built by 2018.

Yesterday’s ruling means jobs for our union brothers and sisters.  It means homes for local families who have dreamed of having a place of their own.

Congratulations to Castle and Cooke!  We look forward to having our operators work on this project.
