What is the General Plan?

The Kaua‘i County General Plan is the top-level policy document that guides how we grow responsibly. A public process will develop a shared vision and goals for the future. The last General Plan Update was completed in 2000, and much has changed! How should we address these changes and move forward? Only together can we chart our course.

Let’s Plan Kaua‘i together!

How does this relate to me?

The General Plan impacts where you live, work and play, how you get around, the character of our Island, our land and water resources, our cultural resources and practices and more!

Let your voice be heard.

What matters to you? What impacts your quality of life? What are your concerns for the future? What should change? No idea is too big or too small – we want to hear it all.

It’s never been easier to participate.
