SP14-404 Jas W. Glover, Ltd.
The subject application is for a Special Permit for quarrying and other support services and accessory uses on a 140-acre parcel identified as TMK (3) 2-1-013: 004 (portion). The parcel is owned by Kamehameha Schools and is within the State Agricultural District. The parcel is located east of the Hawai`i National Guard Site and Hilo International Airport, and 3,000 feet west of the County’s Sewer Treatment Plant.
The LUC received the Special Permit application along with all necessary file documents from the County of Hawai`i Windward Planning Commission on August 1, 2014. The Commission heard the subject application at its hearing on November 20, 2014, in Kahului, Maui. At that time new information had come to the Commission from the State Department of Defense regarding a potential property boundary dispute and archaeological sites. Since this information was not already part of the official record forwarded from the County Planning Commission; the LUC remanded the application back to the County by Order on January 23, 2015, in order that the new information could be reviewed and any changes to recommended conditions could be made.
The Hawaii County Windward Planning Commission held a public hearing on June 2, 2016 to discuss and act upon the Land Use Commission’s remand to consider additional information from the Hawai`i Army National Guard regarding new historic sites findings, boundary discrepancies affecting the permit area and modifying the Special Permit as appropriate.
The Windward Planning Commission considered the request and voted to send a favorable recommendation to the Land Use Commission with proposed conditions for final disposition. The LUC received the County’s updated record and recommendations on July 15, 2016 and scheduled this matter to be heard at its August 10, 2016 meeting in Honolulu.
The LUC voted to grant the Special Permit at the August 10, 2016 meeting and adopted the form of the order at its meeting on August 25, 2016. The Order was finalized and mailed to the Parties on August 26, 2016.
