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.

On June 8th KCFCU presented an early version of plans for a branch location in Kilauea at the monthly KNA meeting. The board and the community members attending were very supportive and appreciative of KCFCU and generally supportive of a branch being opened in Kilauea. How ever the devil is in the details.
This plan puts the branch location directly across the street from the post office. It is a logical location yet in order for that to happen the parcel would have to be sold to KCFCU by a local landowner. Such a sale would only be possible if the landowner’s entire parcel of land was sub-divided. A new sub-division on the Kilauea Plateau implies and includes quite a bit of long term planning for the landowner and for the community of Kilauea as represented by the KNA.
Several members of the KNA raised important questions that will be followed up on in future meetings. Questions like; what other plans will the landowner have for the rest of the parcel? and, will the plans include elements of the North Shore general plan like affordable housing? Your neighbors who are volunteering their time on the KNA are being careful to keep their eye on the big picture for the future of Kilauea town. Stay tuned for more news regarding this subject. Below are diagrams of floor plans, exterior elevations and plot plans of the KCFCU’s first proposal on the subject.
This month’s meeting of the KNA has been moved one night later to Wednesday, June 8th due to a maintenance job inside the building.
The meeting will be at 7pm inside the neighborhood center next Wednesday on June 8th. Here is the link to the full agenda; June, 2016 agenda
