    Track 5: State, Tribal and Local Government Programs and Partnerships
    Large scale redevelopment is a lengthy and complex process and there are continual shifts in partnerships, regulatory requirements, stakeholders, environmental, and infrastructure issues. This session will discuss the diverse public private partnerships (PPP’s) that Hunt Companies has entered into for the redevelopment of 540 acres of the former Naval Air Station Barbers Point, Oahu, Hawaii; now Kalaeloa. The initial public private partnership is with the U.S. Navy for the transfer of property in 2008. As the development program has evolved, new PPPs at all levels of government have been required. To date, the PPP’s include: •Privatized Remediation – Hunt is working with Weston Solutions, Inc. to remediate the site on behalf of the Navy under the existing lease; •Community Development – in partnership with the Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA) , Hunt and HCDA have worked to develop the zoning, subdivision requirements and easements district wide; •Utility Privatization – working with a Hawaii Water and the Navy, Hunt is working to upgrade and replace the World War II generation water and wastewater systems; •Renewable Energy Park: Partnering with Hanwa, Scatec Solar North America, and Swinerton Renewable Energy, the partnership developed the largest solar energy generation facilities on Oahu; Attendees will have the chance to discuss the changing PPP model and why flexibility is the most important element in creating meaningful partnerships.
