HOLLYN JOHNSON/Tribune-Herald This stretch of Kanoelehua Avenue would be part of an economic development district that seeks to improve state land used for commercial, hotel and industrial purposes in Hilo.

A bill that would create a sprawling redevelopment district for Hilo under a 10-year pilot program is headed for a vote in the state House and Senate.
