Plans in works for Aiea zip line


HONOLULU (AP) — A real estate development company is proposing a zip line tourist attraction over an Aiea neighborhood.

The estimated $1 million project would be the second zip line operation on Oahu, in a tourism-driven business that has grown more rapidly on the outer islands.

An affiliate of Towne Development of Hawaii Inc. filed a draft environmental assessment with the state. Plans call for seven pairs of zip lines in forested ridges above Waimalu’s Royal Summit neighborhood.

The company said the business will not be seen or heard by those in nearby homes. But some residents fear it will cause more traffic.
