(BIVN) – After years of work, the proposed Ka’u Community Development Plan is on the verge on final adoption.
All the Ka’u CDP needs is Hawaii County Council approval. However, legal concerns stalled it in the council’s planning committee. The councilmembers have had three weeks to mull it over, and on Wednesday they came back to the table ready to give it a vote.
The members of the Ka’u community who worked on the plan were there too, to urge the council to take action.
Big Island Video News filmed the public testimony and the discussion that took place afterwards, until the council committee went into executive session.
UPDATE: The Council committee voted to recommend the approval of the CDP, Councilmembers say. It will now go to the full council for approval.
