Recommended CDP: January 2017

CDP Documents and supporting materials

CDP Outline with Links to Materials

From February-May 2017 the Recommended CDP was reviewed by various State and County agencies.  View the feedback received during that review HERE.

In December 2016, the Hamakua CDP Steering Committee recommended approval of the CDP.  View and download sections of the recommended CDP by clicking on the links in the CDP outline below.  

The Steering Committee's recommendations incorporated revisions based on community review of the March 2016 draft CDP.

The CDP (Chapter 1 below) includes an Executive Summary and a more detailed introductory section.

CDP Structure

The CDP is structured as outlined above.

Chapter I, The Hamakua Community Development Plan, is the document that will eventually be adopted by ordinance by the County Council.  The intent is to keep the CDP as concise and accessible as possible, leaving supporting material and analysis in the appendix.

Chapters II, III, and IV are supplementary materials designed to expedite CDP implementation.

Materials in the appendix set the context for and provide the detailed analysis behind the body of the CDP.  Therefore, they were the first to be completed.

Chapter V5 includes the rationale behind each of the County Policies and Advocacy items in the CDP.

Document Navigation Tips

Internal hyperlinks have been inserted to simplify navigation within documents.

Each document also has "Bookmarks," which can be seen by opening the Bookmark navigation pane in Adobe Acrobat Reader.  View/ Navigation Panels/ Bookmarks.

After following an internal link, it is easy to return to the previous point in the document by using either the Bookmark navigation pane or the "Previous View" button, which can be added to the "Page Navigation" toolbar in Acrobat Reader.

Sections of the Appendix are not designed to read from start to finish.  Consider reading through the introductory sections and then using the tables of contents, figures, and tables to find material of greatest interest.
