Proposed Honolulu Train

According to an online article written by Michael Levine at "Honolulu Civil Beat", "A pair of homebuilders and a handful of government agencies own more than half of the land surrounding the proposed route for Honolulu's 20-mile rail system, an analysis of real estate data shows."

"Of the more than 500 entities that own at least an acre within 2,500 feet of the route, Ohana Military Communities LLC and D.R. Horton-Schuler Homes are the two largest stakeholders.
