Meeting Wed. to discuss Kilauea ag park options

KILAUEA — The public is invited to attend a meeting to discuss proposed options for the 75-acre agricultural park in Kilauea.

The alternatives have been developed by the county’s consultant, Kimura International, after extensive discussions with members of the Kilauea community, elected officials, farmers and others throughout the island.

The meeting will be from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Malama Kaua‘i conference room (formerly the Guava Kai gift shop), 4900 Ku‘awa Road.

O‘ahu-based Kimura International was hired by the county earlier this year to work with stakeholders to develop a master plan for the 75-acre agricultural park.

The planning process is being coordinated by the Office of Economic Development.

The long-awaited project was made possible through a transfer of acreage in the Crater Hill area to the county in the fall of 2006. The donation of the ag park parcel was a condition of development imposed by the Planning Department more than 25 years ago.

For more information or to request special accommodations, call the Office of Economic Development at 241-4946.
