This Bill proposes to amend Chapter 8, Article 11, Kaua’i County Code 1987, as amended (Special Treatment Districts (ST)) by establishing a new “Special Treatment Coastal Edge (ST-CE) District” specifying additional performance required for development in particularly vulnerable areas along the coastline, to ensure that development within those applicable areas is constructed in a manner that safely mitigates impacts from coastal hazards, including but not limited to sea level rise, coastal erosion, high wave run-up, passive flooding, and an increased frequency and intensity of storms. Zoning Maps ZM-K100 (Kekaha), ZM-W100 (Waimea), ZM-200, and ZM-H200 (Hanapepe) will be amended correspondingly.
Bill No. 2800

CODE 1987, AS AMENDED, BY ESTABLISHING A NEW PLANTATION CAMP (PC) DISTRICT AND AMENDING ZONING MAP ZM-200 (ZA-2020-10)
This Bill proposes to: (1) allow for the establishment of a new “Plantation Camp (PC) Zoning District” that will provide greater nonconforming flexibility to accommodate the repair and rebuilding capacity of those structures that currently exist within the proposed Plantation Camp Zoning District, and (2) amend Zoning Map ZM-200 (in the Hanapepe Planning Area) from Agricultural District (A) to Plantation Camp District (PC) for a portion of Tax Map Keys (4) 1-7-006:001
and (4) 1-7-006:003 located in Makaweli, and a portion of Tax Map
Key (4) 2-2-001:001 located in Numila.
Bill No. 2801
A BILL FOR AN ORDINANCE TO OVERLAY THE SPECIAL TREATMENT PUBLIC FACILITIES DISTRICT (ST-P) ON A PORTION OF ZONING MAP ZM-H200 (HANAPEPE) (ZA-2020-11)
This Bill proposes to amend Zoning Map ZM-H200 (Hanapepe) to include the Port Allen Airport lands in the Special Treatment Public Facilities District, as it is a public facility at a location with significant cultural, historical, ecological, and recreational importance.
Bill No. 2802
A BILL FOR AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ZONING MAP ZM-200 (ZA-2020-12)
This Bill proposes to amend Zoning Map ZM-200 (in the Hanapepe Planning Area) from “Agricultural District” (A) to “Industrial District” (I-G) for a portion of Tax Map Keys (4) 1-7-006:003 and (4) 1-7-006:001 located within the ahupua’a of Makaweli. This change is proposed because portions of the State Land Use Urban Boundary in Makaweli that are within the Agricultural Zoning District have been dedicated to industrial uses for many decades and these industrial-use areas (which include the site of Olokele Sugar Mill) support agricultural processing and product development that continue to support Kaua’i’s economy.
