Keauhou Bay Management Plan Recommendations

The project is the Kamehameha Schools (KS) Keauhou Bay Management Plan (KBMP). The KBMP is a long–term management and land use plan that will guide and prioritize Kamehameha Schools (KS) actions for the future planning, improvement, and operational use of approximately 32 acres of KS and former Kamehameha Investment Corporation (KIC) lands in the Keauhou Bay area in alignment with the  22 acres currently under lease to the Outrigger Kona Resort and Spa.

The plan seeks to achieve the following:

  • Establish and expand place-based cultural stewardship activities to cultivate a strong Native Hawaiian identity.
  • Support engaging, high-quality, and meaningful educational experiences that include a strategic collaboration with other organizational partners
  • Support nurturing a positive and enduring relationship with community members within the Keauhou Bay region that share similar values and a commitment to education,‘āina, and culture
  • Optimize and invest in revenue opportunities that align to the betterment of our beneficiaries or the management of our assets and provide long-term economic returns

Pursuant to Chapter 343, Hawai‘i Revised Statutes and Hawai‘i Administrative Rules, (Environmental Impact Statement Rules), Sections 11-200.1, an EIS is required as the project requires a County Special Management Area Use Permit.

The EIS process is designed to assist agency decision-making by establishing a review that is informed and balanced in its analysis. The process is also intended to increase public participation by integrating a public comment period as well as community meetings with various stakeholders. Accordingly, it is important for this project to undertake a comprehensive consultation approach throughout the EIS process.

EISPN Document

The 30-day comment period began on March 23, 2022 and ended on April 22, 2022.

The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and instructions for the next public comment period will be posted on this page, when available.
