LIHUE — The Kauai County Council on Wednesday unanimously deferred a proposal to establish pedestrian access and parking easements in Koloa.
The Office of the County Attorney asked the council to defer the proposal to give them more time to review it.
According to a letter to Mike Dahilig, director of the Planning Department, the grant for public access covers three areas along Weliweli Road in Koloa.
• An easement for short-term public parking adjacent to Pe’e Road.
• A shoreline access easement, which is a 30-foot wide stretch to allow public access.
• An easement to allow the public to access the area parallel to the shoreline.
By installing these extra easements, county officials hope to offer more parking options on the road, according to the Grant of Easement proposal sent to the council.
If approved, prohibited activities in the easements include removing, injuring or killing plant or animal life, possessing alcohol or drugs, leaving cars unattended for over 24 hours and trespassing on adjacent private properties.
The County Council will discuss the proposal again on March 8.
