Kauai Historic Preservation Review Commission

Historic Preservation Review Commission conducts project reviews and provides recommendations on various aspects of archaeological and building design of historic resources and in-fill development.  It also discusses other issues related to the promotion of historic preservation.

The County of Kauai became a Certified Local Government (CLG) under provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. The U.S. Department of Interior-National Park Service via the State Dept. of Land & Nat. Resources administers the CLG program which assists local governments in promoting historic preservation endeavors. To qualify as a CLG, local government preservation activities must include public participation and use of a qualified local review commission (Kauai Historic Preservation Review Commission), survey and inventory of historic resources and participation in State/Federal preservation activities.

The Kauai Historic Preservation Review Commission consists of nine members.  Four members are appointed by the Mayor including professionals of special expertise or interest in history, planning, or Hawaiian culture and one at-large.  Four members are appointed by the County Council including professionals in archaeology, architecture/architectural history and two at-large.  One member is appointed by the Commission.  Members are appointed to staggered three year terms.
