These areas, as specified by this Chapter, are to be considered historical resources and references which may inform future preservation and development in the State. Hawaii’s unique location, physical conditions, social history and cultural characteristics provides a framework for this Chapter’s efforts towards the conservation, adaptive reuse and sustainability of these areas of historical assets. Increasing public and professional awareness of Hawaii’s modern heritage through advocacy, organized events, development of resource material, and collaboration among other organizations are the key deliverables of this mission.
