The kiosk was built with a $2,500 grant from the National Association of Realtors. Pelaia spearheaded the project when she was former president of the Kachemak Bay Board of Realtors. The kiosk will be open during daylight hours in the winter and then for extended hours in the summer, and includes information about Homer businesses and recreational opportunities.
