A plan to build 48 new vacation cabins at Bellows Air Force Station has stunned many Waimanalo residents who oppose the project and have called for the return of military property that is no longer used for defense purposes.

The community learned of the project at an April 13 Waimanalo Neighborhood Board meeting. Board members said they do not want any expansion of the base's recreational programs.

"What they're trying to do is turn it into a vacation resort for the military," said Wilson Ho, chairman of the neighborhood board. "We don't want any more building."

With the dwindling use of the base's 1,483 acres for military purpose, Ho said it's time to give the land back to the public.
