ay 3, 2009 Air Force plan to add rec cabins at Hawaii beach stirs concernSome residents against 48 new military structures, say ceded land is involved
By Eloise Aguiar Honolulu Advertiser (HI) May 3, 2009A 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.

"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.
