How would you improve Rice Street in the heart of Lihue?
The Kauai Board of REALTORS®, in conjunction with the National Association of REALTORS®, is sponsoring a community survey on the revitalization of Rice Street.  What obstacles do you see in making it better?  If you could make one change to Rice Street, what would you suggest?  How can we create a place where everyone wants to be?
Your ideas and opinions will help us develop new projects and improvements for the downtown area.  Along with the new branding campaign and street improvements planned, we hope to help Rice Street property owners, businesses and shoppers work together for revitalization of Lihue's historic center.

Please take a moment to add your ideas at the survey link above.
