HONOLULU – Governor David Ige today announced his nominees to the Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA).
The HCDA is a state agency that was established to promote and coordinate public and private sector community development in its designated community development districts.
This is the first time Board members have been named in accordance with Act 61 (HRS Sec. 206E-3), and they are subject to confirmation by the Senate.
The appointees are:

At-Large Member, Nominated by the Speaker of the House
Heeia Community, Nominated by the Honolulu City Council

By statute, the terms of these members were determined by lot.
By statute, the director of finance and the director of transportation, or their designees, also serve on the Board as ex officio members, and the county director of planning and permitting and the chairperson of the Hawaiian Homes Commission serve in an ex-officio, nonvoting capacity.
Two positions, both to be appointed by the governor, have yet to be announced: one at-large member and one cultural specialist.
