Planning Commission Meeting re: "Removing Princeville Phase II Resort Designation from General Plan 2020"
We are writing about a very important issue that affects the future of the north shore. In earlier drafts of the General Plan, the planning department recommended removing the resort land use designation from the Princeville plateau (the area above Anini surrounding the Prince club house across from the dump). However, the most recent draft and its maps, restore Princevilleʻs Phase II resort land use designation.
This area potentially expands Princevilleʻs high density development substantially Eastward towards Kilauea, affecting open lands, agriculture and views makai of the highway as well as Anini stream and reef health. Community members are being asked to show up and show by our numbers and testimonies how you feel about new resort zoning for the north shore.
We are writing to ask if you could share this information with your networks, friends, and families. (Hanalei-Hāʻena, Princeville and Kilauea Neighborhood Association mailing lists and on websites), and with any other groups or individuals you think would be interested.
PLEASE CLICK HEADLINE FOR A SUMMARY OF DETAILS.
For those who want more information, there are also TWO TABLES, C and D that list current entitled resort projects for the island (already zoned and in some cases permitted) and unentitled (but designated on land use maps) projects, such as this one. And more GENERAL PLAN TEXT on this issue of “pipeline” and “unentitled” projects that are not yet built, but were planned in the 1980s, a serious issue for our island. Please share whatever level of information you feel would be useful using whatever media work best for you! And please take time to submit testimony!
Much aloha and thank you all so much for your work and caring for Haleleʻa.
