The Kauai County Housing Agency (County) anticipates receiving federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the proposed project.  The proposed County project is considered a federal undertaking as defined in Title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 800.16(y) and is subject to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). 

 

Proposed Project:

The proposed affordable housing development project involves the construction of 54 multi-family affordable rental housing units together with onsite parking areas and associated utility installation.  The proposed project is located in Līhu’e, Kaua‘i.

 

Area of Potential Effects (APE)

The proposed Area of Potential Effects (APE) comprises Tax Map Key (TMK) (4) 3-8-005:028 and 29.  The APE is a total of approximately 1.46 acres.  The APE extends up to 10 feet below the surface for trench work and utility installation.  The property is bounded on the northwest by the Kauai County Department of Water parking lot, on the northeast by Pua Loke Street, on the southeast by Haleko Road, and on the southwest by a series of commercial and professional buildings surrounded by parking lots. All flanks of the overall APE are developed. The APE is situated within a built environment which includes buildings, paved parking lots, landscaping, and infrastructure.

 

Project Findings

An archaeological inventory survey (AIS) was conducted for the proposed project. The AIS resulted in negative findings, which are presented as an archaeological assessment (AA) report in accordance with Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR) §13-275-5.  On September 13, 2018, The State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) accepted the AA and concurred with the County’s HRS 6E project effect determination of no historic properties affected.  An Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared in accordance with Chapter 343 Hawai‘i Revised Statutes (HRS), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (Title 40 CFR Parts 1500-1508), and 24 CFR Part 58.  On March 19, 2018 the Final EA and Finding of No Significant Impact (FEA-FONSI) was issued.  Copies of the AA and FEA-FONSI may be viewed online at www.kauai.gov/housing
