A parcel of land with fantastic views was developed for farmers mauka of Waialua on Kaukonahua Road. Agricultural zoning (narrow streets, above ground eloectric lines) was approved. Homeowners enjoy paying lower property taxes. The loss revenue is paid for by other residents because it is in the public interest to be agriculturally self-sufficient. The majority of landowners impeded real agriculture. The community became a gated subdivision. The City and County of Honolulu took the position that if agriculturallz-zoned land of one acre or more is fenced and if a horse eats the grass one day a year, then the property is being used as a farm and the owner is entitled to lower property taxes.
