Philip and Linda Green of Kilauea are seeking a Special Management Area Use Permit for the construction of a three-bedroom home, guest house, garage and pool with rock retaining walls, site grading and driveway on their 12-acre lot within the Seacliff Plantation subdivision. Residents opposed to the development cite cultural and ecological concerns.

KILAUEA — A wave of resident testimony on the potential cultural and ecological impacts of a development within the gated Seacliff Plantation subdivision has caused the Planning Commission to defer any decision on the application until December.
