Located near the center of the of Oʻahu, Mililani consists of two distinct locations, Mililani Town, and Mililani Mauka. As with most of Central Oahu, Mililani sits on former plantation fields, on the plateau or “central valley” between the two volcanic mountains, The Wai’anae range and Ko’olau range, that comprise the island. Planning for its development began in the early 1960s. This Master Planned Community was built to satisfy Oʻahu’s great pent-up demand for housing. The first homes in Mililani went on sale on June 3, 1968.

The Interstate H-2 opened in 1976, cutting travel time from Mililani to Honolulu in half. In 1986, Mililani was named an All-America City, the only community in Hawaiʻi ever to receive this distinction. This largely bedroom community also has its own commercial shopping centers, schools, parks, community centers, and a golf course, and is typical of a modern American suburban town. Because it is a Master-Planned Community, Mililani homeowners must pay dues to the Mililani Town Association, which enforces covenants and design standards, and provides recreational facilities including several pools.

The Mililani Golf Club is a par-72, 6,455-yard course that is open to the public. The Mililani Technology Park is a nearby campus-like park that is zoned for high-tech industries.

To the west of Interstate H-2 lies the older portion of Mililani, known as Mililani Town. The town is somewhat physically confined between the two large central Oʻahu gulches of Waikele and Kīpapa. Almost all of Mililani’s commercial and retail centers are in Mililani Town. Traveling north on either Kamehameha Highway (State Rte. 99) or Interstate H-2 connects the traveler with Wahiawā. Traveling south on either of these arteries connects to Waipiʻo.

To the east of Interstate H-2, you will find the newer section of Mililani, known as Mililani Mauka. On April 6, 1990, ground was broken for Mililani Mauka, a newer and more upscale community east of the Interstate H-2. The first homeowners moved into Mauka in 1992.

In 2003, Mililani was designated as the pilot site for the City and County of Honolulu’s curbside recycling program. In 2005, Money magazine named Mililani as one of the best places to live in the U.S. In 2006, Mililani ʻIke Elementary School first grade teacher Phyllis Nakama-Kawamoto was named Hawaiʻi’s American Star of Teaching by the U.S. Department of Education.

The third region of Mililani, known as Launani Valley, below Mililani Tech Park on Wikao Street. This secluded development located in a valley contains a blend of townhome and single-family units.
