A10-786 Olowalu Town


CLOSED (Petitioner requested that Petition for DBA be closed 4/7/16)

The Commission’s Decision & Order on June 22, 2010 acknowledged that the LUC was the appropriate accepting authority for this EIS and that an EIS was warranted.  A hearing was held to consider the acceptability of the Final EIS on December 7 and 10, 2015 on Maui.  The LUC denied acceptance of the FEIS at this time.  The Decision and Order describing the reasons for the denial can be found below under the LUC Notices and Orders section.

The applicant had a couple of different options as to how to proceed.  The applicant may have prepared a revised Draft EIS and studies that would then require notice and publication in the Environmental Bulletin with a 45-day comment period; or decided to appeal the LUC’s decision to the State Environmental Council (administered by the Office of Environmental Quality Control (OEQC), State Department of Health) within 60 days of notice of non-acceptance.  (The Environmental Council has 30 days to hear any appeal filed by the applicant and notify the applicant of its determination.)

**The Petitioner requested that the Petition for District Boundary Amendment be closed on 4/7/16 (see Petitioner Filing section). The LUC acknowledged their request on 4/8/16.
