The Ka‘ū Community Development Plan was adopted by ordinance on 
October 17th, 2017!

What are the next steps?

The modern district of Ka‘ū encompasses 922 square miles, with over 80 miles of virtually undeveloped coastline. Nearly two-thirds of its total land area is in the Conservation district, a fraction of a percent is settled, and the remainder is largely agricultural. The Ka‘ū CDP includes the areas of Pāhala, Punalu‘u, Nā‘ālehu, Discovery Harbour, and Ocean View.

The Ka‘ū CDP is a forum for community input into County policy at the regional level and the delivery of County services to the community.
