Highlights and Talking Points
Hokua Place will be a Planned Community
1. Hokua Place is Smart Growth for Kauai, not random sprawl. It is above the flood zone, in an old cane field that has been earmarked for urban growth since the 1970s. The existing middle school was built here in anticipation of future housing. Hokua Place won’t appear overnight. The process takes many years, with construction taking place in phases.
2. Kauai needs housing, and Hokua Place has proposed 86 single-family homes, and 57 multi-family town buildings totaling 683 townhouses. Kapaʻa needs townhouses. They cost a fraction of single family homes.
3. Affordable, work force housing will be integrated throughout the project conforming to the Kauai County Ordinance No. 860 housing policy.
4. Public amenities planned are a community pool and cultural pavilion, sidewalks, bike paths, parks, connectivity to Kapaʻa Town, and there is a spot set aside for a mini mart or other small business.
ROADS BEFORE HOUSES. Hokua Place and the State Highways Division are planning the following Traffic Improvements.
5. Hokua Place will donate the bypass road adjacent to the subdivision and additional land for future improvements. This helps the state add an additional lane to each end of the bypass to resolve traffic issues.
6. Hokua Place will build a new road so traffic can flow through Hokua Place instead of in front of the middle school.
7. Hokua Place will donate land for a reconfiguration and improvement of the 3 road Olohena Kaapuni intersection above the subdivision.
Hokua Place is committed to the Environment
9. Hokua Place embraces Sustainability. There will be 17 acres of parks and open spaces with another 66 acres remaining agricultural. A solar farm, well, and ongoing agricultural operations are already part of this project.
10. Careful consideration has been paid to archaeological, historical and environmental impacts. The expert reports conclude that there are no negative impacts.
