In 2019, the County of Kauaʻi purchased the 417-acre parcel between Kekaha and Waimea, mauka of Kaumuali’i Highway, referred to as Waimea 400 . When the County acquired the land, Mayor, Derek Kawakami expressed his excitement for the opportunity to engage with the community on the potential for recreation, housing, and economic uses that will serve the West Side and Kaua‘i in perpetuity. The County decided that the path forward was to let the community decide the best use of the parcel through a community-based planning process.
This master plan is the culmination of the knowledge, ideas, and input from the community, agencies, and resource partners from September of 2020 through September of 2021. It summarizes the process which informed the final conceptual design alternatives and preferred uses that were vetted by the residents, particularly of West Kauaʻi. Recommendations for steps forward to implement preferred uses and design are also provided, but may be changed pending further analysis, community preferences, and funding opportunities.
