A17-804 HAWAIIAN MEMORIAL LIFE PLAN, LTD.

Background

Hawaiian Memorial Life Plan, Ltd. (“Petitioner”) is requesting to amend the boundaries of the State Land Use Conservation District into the State Urban District for approximately 53.449 acres of land at Kāne’ohe, Island of O’ahu, State of Hawai’i covering Tax Map Key No. (1)-4-5-033: por. 001.  The proposed reclassification is to allow the expansion of the cemetery area, creation of a cultural preserve, internal roadways, and open space area. The proposed expansion will require the use of state or county lands, including public roadways that will trigger an environmental assessment under Section 343-5(a)(1), Hawai`i Revised Statutes (HRS).

Status

Petitioner filed its Petition with the Commission on Monday November 13, 2017.  The Petition has been reviewed by staff for completeness.  However, the Petition has been deemed incomplete until the Chapter 343, HRS, environmental review process has been completed and Petitioner files an amended Petition.

Petitioner also filed on November 13, 2017, Petitioner’s Motion to Designate the Land Use Commission as Approving Authority for Environmental Statement Under Chapter 343, HRS, and for Authority to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement Preparation Notice (“EISPN”).  The Commission held a hearing on this request on November 21, 2017 in Honolulu, Hawai’i.  The Commission agreed to be the reviewing and accepting agency for Petitioner’s Chapter 343, HRS, compliance; identified that the project as proposed would likely have significant environmental impacts requiring that an EIS would be required, and directed the Petitioner to prepare and file an EISPN with the State Office of Environmental Quality Control (OEQC) that will begin the public review process for this proposed project.
