Pot Luck and Kuka Kuka to discuss Land-Use Zoning change being requested by the Kapaa Heights Developers.

Wednesday, 14 January 2015 from 5:00-7:00pm

Main Pavilion at Lydgate Beach Park south of the Wailua River, Kauai.

Would you like to know more about the newly proposed Kapa`a Heights Development?

This Wednesday evening January 14 from 5-7pm at the main pavilion at Lydgate Beach Park, all concerned Kaua`i residents are invited to attend a pot luck and kuka kuka (open discussion) about the Land-Use Zoning change being requested by the Kapaa Heights Developers.  You are invited!

Presently the 97 acre project area (the former canelands on the bluff west of the Bypass Road past the Fellowship Christian Church, south of the Kapa`a traffic circle, and south of Olohena Road behind and surrounding the Kapa`a Middle School extending down to the bridge by the solar farm) is zoned "Agricultural."

The developers are requesting the land use be changed to "Urban" so they can construct a high density neighborhood of approximately 800 homes for 2,000 people and cars, as well as a new 1.4 acre commercial district and network of interior neighborhood streets to connect Olohena and the Kapa`a Bypass road.

If completed, this project would be like adding a second Wailua Houselots to the East side.  Read the proposal here:

  • How do you think this project could impact you? 
  • What are your concerns?
  • What kinds of improvements and mitigation efforts would you like to see completed by the developers BEFORE they get a land use zoning change?  
The public comment period for this project ENDS Thursday, January 22 2015, so if you would like to learn more before you email your comments to 1. Land Use Commission: email address luc@dbedt.hawaii.gov this is your opportunity.

Please join us Wednesday evening January 14 from 5-7pm at the Lydgate Beach Park Pavilion to discuss and share information about this project proposal.  Please bring drinks and pupus (yummy snacks) to share with your neighbors.  It will be fun, and we'll get stuff done!

If you know anyone who might be interested, please help get out the word by forwarding them this email.  All are welcome!
