Kailua Urban Task Force

The Kailua Urban Design Task Force was created by the Kailua Chamber of Commerce in 1994 at the suggestion of a Mayor Frank Fasi task force studying improvements for the Kailua ahupua'a (land area from the tip of the mountains down to the seaside). The first group meetings were in January 1995 at the Boetcher Estate on Kailua Bay, and the KUDTF has been busy ever since. The main purview is the Central Business District (CBD) of Kailua Town, to help the businesses with Architectural Guidelines and improvements for all property owners as well as for the public.  Suggested Urban Design Guidelines were published in 1997 and updated in 2008, and are contained in this website

Kailua Independence Day Parade

The Kailua Chamber of Commerce is proud to sponsor the Annual Kailua Independence Day Parade.

The Kailua Parade has been enjoyed by our community for more than 68 years because it celebrates democracy, freedom and our veterans! It is important for us to maintain its community-based flavor without getting too commercialized.

We welcome you to spend the day in Kailua to watch Dozens of Parade Participants...Bands, Military & Veterans Marching Units, Horses, Youth groups, Seniors, Schools, Hawaii Dignitaries and more.

After the Parade go into Kailua Town, Aikahi or Enchanted Lake for food, fusion, ethnic, pizza...almost everything your taste buds crave.  Then Shopping in Kailua, where you can find hundreds of merchants, selling everything from Antiques to Zippers.

Come out and help Kailua celebrate our Country’s Freedom and Thank the Men and Women who helped, and continue to help, keep our Country Free !!
