On August 19, 2015, the DLNR gave a presentation at Hanalei School regarding the proposed Hā‘ena Master Plan. This was an opportunity to provide information and receive feedback from the community. The overall objective of the Hā‘ena Master Plan is to:

  • “Develop park facilities and infrastructure with deference to Hā‘ena’s significant cultural and natural resources balanced with fiscal reality.”
  • “Coordinate with appropriate public agencies on the proposed changes to the section of Kūhiō Highway within the Park.”
  • “Reduce use of the comfort station at Kē‘ē by providing additional facilities elsewhere such as a new visitor facility.”

    I am currently off Island in Cali. My question is before I commit to buying property in Hanalei the affects of the BLM worries me ! Ref to Hanalei river access project of Kauai county. Rumors are county has taken property from local residence like for example M. Sheehan river property. Very little support from community to stop the proposal with the BLM …. The proposed marina and parking situation will have high impact on the local environment … All for the proposed HBR river expanded property access for Resort river activity ….
