As part of the West Kaua‘i Community Plan process, community design workshops are scheduled for Hanapēpē- ‘Ele‘ele, Waimea, and Kekaha. The events will examine the form and character of West Kaua‘i’s town centers including issues related to housing, shared spaces, connectivity, and traffic circulation, according to County of Kaua‘i news release.
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss what degree of change is desired or expected for each community, and the ways in which places can be preserved, evolved, or transformed over the next 20 years.
“I encourage community members to actively participate in the workshops,” said Deputy Planning Director Ka‘āina Hull. “Now is the time to shape the future of your town and express what you want to see.”
Each workshop will include a walk audit, an opening presentation, an open design studio, an open house, and a closing presentation. The schedule is as follows:
