Princeville Phase II zoning up for debate.

Posted by

The county planning commission has moved the General plan agenda item and the subject of Princeville resort zoning so many times it is almost impossible for the average citizen to know how or when to participate in the process of planning.
Lucky for you a few neighbors are paying attention.

All the information in this post is accurate accept the dates.
The new planning commission meeting date is Tuesday, May 23rd. @ 9am. Written testimony should be recieved by mail or email one day before the meeting. The meeting location is in room 2A-2B of the county building at 4444 Rice st., Lihue.

Your presence, your person or your testimony will carry great weight at this meeting. See the links below for more information.


This links helps understand the General Plan language for resort zoning.

This link offers a sample letter for written testimony in favor of the proposed change.

Stories of Kilauea.

Posted by

This post is a developing collection of Kilauea History that will a permanent home in the “history” section as it evolves.

First we have a priceless collection of four videos provided by local historian and scholar Gary Smith in collaboration and with the permission of the Kauai Historical Society.

Kauai Historical Society – Gary Smith – Kilauea I
Kauai Historical Society – Gary Smith – Kilauea II
Kauai Historical Society – Gary Smith – Kilauea III
Kauai Historical Society – Gary Smith – Kilauea IV

Next is an collaboration between Anaina Hou Community Park and patriarch of one Kilauea’s primary families, Jack Gushiken. Anaina Hou Community Park has a great website in addition to their great facility. One of the gems of the website is a  secti0n called “Anaina Hou, Yesterday and Today”. It includes the historical story telling of “uncle” Jack Gushiken. With permission from our neighbors at Anaina Hou we have attached links to several of those stories.

The following stories and anecdotes are written by Jack Gushiken and we hope there are more to come.

Life on the Kilauea Plantation
The Sugar Cane worker
End of the Sugar Era
World War II
O’opu, Their Last Migration
Old School Days
Kilauea Memories
Why was the Stone Dam built?
Good ole days.

Last chancel for input to Kauai’s General Plan – March 8

Posted by



The Kauai Community Coalition is kindly requesting your participation in what may be the last opportunity for input to the

Planning Commission on the

2017-2035 General Plan


Wednesday March 8, 2017


Kapa’a Library

On March 14 the Planning Commission may make a motion to accept the Draft General Plan that will provide guidance for the future of Kauai up to 2035. As a group of concerned citizens that rose out of the gathering of the Neighborhood Associations, and has been following the General Plan Update review process, we will once again gather to discuss our collective messaging to the Planning Commission prior to, and at, their March 14 meeting. Although the Planning Dept. has made a concerted effort to continue to modify the Plan based on community input, many of us feel the document is not yet complete.

Please join us to discuss and plan for how we might have the greatest impact before the Draft General Plan leaves the Planning Commission and heads to the County Council. 

Look forward to seeing you at the 

Strategic Prep Meeting on March 8, 6-8 pm.

Sponsored by Members of the Kaua’i Community Coalition
