According to today's Garden Island newspaper, Poipu's largest project, Kukui'ula is laying off about 20% of it's staff because of market conditions. The president is reported to have said he hoped no additional cuts would be necessary which leaves open the possibility that there could be more later. It is reported that timelines for the homes, golf course, and shopping center are unaffected by this.
