NORTH SHORE SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES PLAN CORRUPTED BY DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING AND PERMITTING -

    1. Petition by

      Save Haleiwa Beach Park Coalition

NORTH SHORE SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES PLAN CORRUPTED BY DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING AND PERMITTING

 

1) The North Shore Sustainable Communities Plan (NSSCP) Draft Document has

been altered by David Tanoue, Acting Director of Planning and Permitting

Department (DPP) and is inconsistent with the comments and work

contributions submitted by the majority of the NSSCP Planning Advisory

Committee (PAC) members and the North Shore Community at large.

 

2) The changes put in the final NSSCP draft would allow for multiple hotels

to be built on the North Shore without the necessity of Resort Zoning.

 

3). We object to the paradoxical use of the faulty reasoning which is used

to support the  "conditional use permit alternative" (giving authority for

hotel authorization to one Department head).  The blanket statement "resort

zoning is not appropriate for the North Shore" is meaningless if it is used

as rationale to open all of Haleiwa to unlimited resorts through the

issuance of permits.

 

4) We object to the term Country-Inn being replaced with the term "Visitor

Accommodations".

 

5) We object to removing the room cap of 40 rooms for "Country-Inn, Hotel or

Visitor Accommodations".

 

6) We object to the allowance for hotel developers to obtain a Conditional

Use Permit instead of seeking re-zoning to Resort Zoning for a "Country-Inn,

Hotel or Visitor Accommodations."

 

7) We dispute the revision by the Acting Director of DPP which states: "As

an alternative, community members support a Land Use Ordinance (LUO)

amendment to allow for a discretionary permit - such as a Conditional Use

Permit (Major) with criteria specific to the North Shore country inn to

regulate development".

 

8) We are asking the City & County of Honolulu to set aside this document

and it's current deadline for comments and send it back to NSSCP PAC

meetings for additional revision before it proceeds to the Planning

Commission and/or the City Council for final consideration.
