The General Plan Update process kicks off with a series of six community events island wide.

What will these events include?  Some information, of course.  You’ll learn about the General Plan update process and what to expect, meet the project team, and hear some interesting facts and figures.

But most of all these events are about YOU.  No one knows your community like you and your neighbors, and we need to hear your hopes and dreams, realities and challenges.

Together, we can craft and implement a shared vision for Kaua‘i’s future.  Let’s Plan Kaua‘i Kākou!

Here’s the schedule:

Week 1
Thursday, May 14 Waimea Neighborhood Center 5-7 pm
Friday, May 15 Kōloa Neighborhood Center 5-7 pm
Saturday, May 16 Līhu‘e Civic Center Planning Commission Room 9:30-11:30 am
Week 2
Thursday, May 21 Kapa‘a Neighborhood Center 5-7 pm
Friday, May 22 Hanapēpē Neighborhood Center 5-7 pm
Saturday, May 23 Kīlauea Neighborhood Center 9:30-11:30 am

    Mahalo for the opportunity to have community residents from regional areas throughout the island of Kauai to gather to focus on the realm of possibilities about the Kauai General Plan Update. A subject of this magnitude can be quite engrossing, and therefore, overwhelming, so the following options should be considered to expedite the ways in which we can inter-relate effectively:
    1. Please have written summaries of the main points which need to be conveyed. To orally explain the multitude of information takes too much time and does not allow for much inter-action if most of the time is being used to orally transmit the relevant information necessary.
    2. If any of the information can be sent out to the public or if the public can access that information through this site beforehand, this approach may also be helpful, as well.
    3. Should any relevant displays and/or power-point presentations be made, those should be brief and for referential purposes, only. Again, please keep to a minimum, the type of approach where a number of oral presentations are made for the public to absorb, one after the other. For the public-at-large, most people have a difficult time absorbing too much retaining an abundance of information being brought to their attention at one sitting.
