A15-798 Waikapu Properties, LLC, et al

STATUS

Petitioner Waikapu Properties, et.al., filed a petition with the Commission on April 16, 2015 for their project called Waikapu Country Town.  At present the petition is not a complete filing; several important pieces of information are still required.  The Commission heard Petitioner’s Motion asking the Commission to be the approving authority for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and to go straight to preparation of an EIS document at its hearing on Maui on April 29, 2015.  The Commission granted Petitioner’s Motion by Order dated May 1, 2015 (see below under LUC Notices and Orders).  Petitioner has currently filed a draft EIS (DEIS) with the State Office of Environmental Quality Control (OEQC) which was published on February 8, 2016.  The public review and comment period for the DEIS ran until March 24, 2016 *(original deadline as published in February 8 OEQC Bulletin was March 28).  The Public Comments section contains comments received during that time period.  The draft Final EIS (FEIS) was published in the January 8, 2017 issue of the OEQC Bulletin; but you can access a complete copy in sections from the link below.  The Commission accepted the FEIS on January 18, 2017 on Maui.

The Petitioner now must provide the Commission with an amended Petition that incorporates information contained within the accepted FEIS and any additional required information.  Upon submittal of an amended Petition the Commission will review the application for completeness.  If and when the Petition is deemed a complete filing the Commission’s 365-day time period for making a decision will begin.
