On July 8, 2011, Act 210 was signed into law creating the Heʻeia Community Development District (Heʻeia CDD).  The HCDA was designated as the local redevelopment authority of the district to facilitate culturally appropriate agriculture, education, and natural-resource restoration and management of the Heʻeia wetlands.

The subject Draft Heʻeia CDD Plan and Rules is based on background research of Heʻeia and the Heʻeia ahupuaʻa; analysis of site resources and constraints; and consultations with key stakeholders, community members, and government agencies.
