We need "our" Kauai General Plan

Image above: An indication of how bad the General Plan Update is was indicated with this plan of Kauai. Note the "Districts" in the plan relate to no cultural, historical, bioregional, political, or governing identities, but appears to be the  myopic view from the County Planning Department Office in Lihue. See the New Yorker Magazine map of America below. From (http://plankauai.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/island_graphic2.png).

WHAT:
Organizing meeting to address the County of Kauai’s General Plan Update

WHEN:
August 2, 2017 at 6:30pm - 9pm

WHERE:
Kapaa Public Library
Kuhio Highway, Kapaa

WHO:
Community Coalition of Kauai
(www.communitycoalitionkauai.org)

WHY: 
There is a lack of community wide input for this proposed plan which is going to the Kauai County Council for approval.

Take Back the General Plan From the Hands of the Developers, Large Land Owners and Tourism Industry and Make it Your Own

THIS IS YOUR GENERAL PLAN. IS THIS THE FUTURE YOU WANT?

The County Planning Department and Planning Commission have proposed a new General Plan that ignores the hundreds of pages of concerns and input of community members and organizations. The new General Plan proposes town designations, re-zonings, up-zonings and entirely new zoning categories for the benefit of large landowners and developers.

§ We do not need a General Plan that was written by and for developers and the tourism industry.

§ We do need a General Plan that will create balanced/sustainable growth, diversified job opportunities, and protects Kauai’s environment, rural character and quality of life.


PLEASE JOIN US IN THIS COORDINATED COMMUNITY-WIDE EFFORT TO SPEAK WITH ONE VOICE ABOUT THE NEED TO HAVE A GENERAL PLAN THAT FIRST AND FOREMOST MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE RESIDENTS OF KAUAI.

We are looking for your input, your participation and your interest in joining a growing group of concerned community members who want to take back the General Plan. We are coordinating our concerns and efforts in preparation for the delivery of the General Plan to the County Council for their approval.
