The KNA will hold a special public meeting to hear opinion and discuss a sub-division request before the county for the large parcel of land adjacent to Kilauea neighborhoods.
Wednesday, July 20th at 7 pm in the Kilauea Neighborhood Center.
The land is the Bill Haye property that encompasses a large portion of the western half of the Kilauea Plateau, the last major undeveloped area bordering Kilauea town. Andy Friend representing the land owner will attend to present plans and answer questions. At a previous meeting he said that Mr. Haye was beginning the public process of sub-dividing the parcel and explained the initial reason for the sub-division request is that the Kauai Community Federal Credit Union desires to purchase a lot located across from the post office. KCFCU is committed to bringing a branch of the Credit Union to Kilauea. KCFCU Post. In order to proceed one way to sequester a lot for KCFCU is to sub-divide the entire parcel. The parcel is over 120 acres. The proposed sub-division includes 8 parcels: a half acre piece for the Credit Union, a piece dedicated to use as a potential Kilauea bypass feeder road, a piece dedicated to a multi-use path and five large pieces currently being farmed or planned for farming. Two pieces on either side of the potential bypass road and closest to Kilauea town hold interest for Kilauea as possible sites for housing construction. It has been suggested this could be an opportunity for Kilauea to begin the highly desired project of securing, planning and developing much needed housing. It has also been suggested there are other ways to sell a small lot to KCFCU like simply amending the land owners CPR documents. Come discuss these ideas and more.
Mr. Haye is actively farming his land organically and has plans to increase his farmed acreage. The discussion will probably include the subject of the Hunt group’s possible Lighthouse village shopping center and future Kilauea growth but KNA president Yoshi L’Hote will ask that we try to keep the discussion on track in order to define town opinion on this one sub-division issue.
Hope to see you there!
CAT met with Kauai Business Association Board today and they have chosen to join CAT and support our goals. Any other great organizations that want to join and support CAT should have us meet with them and explain what we are about and how they can help our efforts to get crime off our streets.
