Draft South Kaua’i Community Plan available for download

The draft South Kaua’i Community Plan is now available for review and comment. Please visit www.southkauaicp.com to download the draft.

The highlights of the draft plan include:

  • New zoning overlays for Koloa and Kalaheo will implement the community’s desire for village-scaled infill development that respects the existing town character, and provides for diverse housing types in a walkable setting.
  • The zoning overlays utilize form-based code, which will allow more flexible mixed use standards and a mix of mid-density building types such as “courtyard housing”, while establishing context-sensitive urban form standards.
  • A multimodal transportation network map was developed through community input and a transportation analysis that considered “mode shift” from vehicle trips to active transportation trips.

The land use map identifies a new focused growth area, called the Poipu Gateway Mixed Use Village, as an appropriate place for new development to meet projected workforce housing needs in an area directly adjacent to the region’s major employment center.
