Billionaire David Murdock is selling the island of Lanai to billionaire Larry Ellison.
Now that news of the big sale is out, the big question is: what will happen to Lanai?
Residents and lawmakers weigh in on the future of the Pineapple Isle.
Lanai is a quiet and quaint place without even a traffic light, but it has had some controversy -- a huge wind farm proposed for the northwestern part of the island.
Even though Lanai is being sold, the idea is not being scrapped.
According to a Castle and Cooke announcement, "Mr. Murdock will still retain the rights to develop a potential wind farm."
The issue divided the close knit Lanai community, where some envision a future free from wind farms.
"I'm hopeful Mr. Ellison looks at the island and all of it's beauty and says putting windmills up would be terribly detrimental to the beauty and value of what he just purchased," said Robin Kaye, with Friends of Lanai.
Some hope a different type of farm will instead be growing in Lanai's future.
"I am hopeful that we can look at returning to agriculture on the island, whether it is for energy production or food crops, to use some of that land that has been sitting idle for many, many years," said Sen. Kalani English, who represents Lanai.
