11/12/2014 – Stakeholder Meetings to Discuss Improvements to the State’s Land Use SystemPosted on Nov 12, 2014 in Main
The Office of Planning (OP) is undertaking a comprehensive review of the State’s land use system. Our goal is to seek improvements that would make the process more efficient and effective without compromising the original intent of the law: “preserve, protect, and encourage the development of the lands in the State for those uses to which they are best suited for the public welfare[.]” See L. 1961, c 187, § 1.
OP is hosting stakeholder meetings on Oahu, Maui, Hawaii and Kauai to hear from interested stakeholders on the effectiveness of the State’s land use system. These meetings may be of particular interest to land owners, developers, farmers, conservationists, planners and others who have had or will have experience with State land use, district boundary amendments, and special permit matters.
