HHF recently welcomed Gene Yong, AICP to the firm. Gene brings to HHF 30 years of professional experience in land use planning, master planning, entitlements, educational facilities planning and military planning in Hawai‘i and the continental United States. Over the past two decades at his last firm in Hawai‘i, he built a high level of expertise in federal infrastructure and facilities planning work for the Navy, particularly its naval shipyards. His work with HHF on the Navy’s recent Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Plan covered all four of the Navy’s shipyards and was recognized by the American Planning Association in 2019.
Gene has an extensive portfolio of planning and entitlement work with many of Hawai‘i’s largest educational institutions and landowners, including Punahou School, Kamehameha Schools, Maryknoll School, Chaminade University, Mid Pacific Institute, Iolani School, the State Department of Education Shriners Hospital for Children, North Hawai‘i Community Hospital, and the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency.
