The Lihue Town Core Urban Design Plan

 

The Lihue Town Core Urban Design Plan was adopted in March 2010.  

 

Lihue is Kauai's administrative, business, and transportation center, and was identified as the "Heart" of Kauai in the General Plan 2000 Update.  The Plan guides the revitalization of Lihue by establishing special planning areas that provide recommendations for mixed-use zoning, historic preservation, building design, and streetscaping.  Guidelines for improved vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian circulation are also included.
