A lot is riding on Grove Farm land sale

There has been very little in the paper about the impending sale of Mahaulepu

to an Oahu development company. We are pleased that Grove Farm, with its

financial problems, has been able to make such a timely sale, but are extremely

disheartened to lose Grove Farm as a steward of the area.

Now that it

probably will be owned by a development company, it is important that the

community, the Kaua’i County Council and the Planning Commission assure us that

no rezoning will be done there. The area is too important for recreation,

beauty, fishing, as a habitat for endangered species, a place of importance to

the Hawaiian people and as an archeological research area to allow it to be

ruined by development. I hope the community will be diligent in overseeing this

process of change.
