Mayor Alan Arakawa answers some of the most-asked questions submitted to his office staff.

Aloha Mayor Arakawa,

Q: I was wondering if there is a way to survey the want and/or need for tennis courts to be included in the park being built for Waikapū? The area’s population is continuing to grow and there are only a handful of courts in Wailuku for all the residents. Oftentimes, the tennis clubs have tournaments or practices, limiting community residents’ court time. Mahalo for your time and consideration.

A:  Our Parks director said the department is conducting a community assessment that will allow residents to have input on what they would like to have in the park, and what their needs are. If you would like to participate in this survey, please email [email protected] or call 270-7388. You can also attend of our community Budget meetings to voice your suggestions; for a schedule of meeting dates, times and locations, visit
