NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING The County of Hawai’i, through its Department of Finance, will be conducting community outreach for the Kahuku Coastal (also known as Road to the Sea) Resources Management Plan. The purpose of the outreach is to 1) gather input on important cultural and natural resources to preserve and protect in this area, 2) create a shared vision for the Road to the Sea property, and 3) identify opportunities to best steward these lands and resources. The County acquired this 3,000+ acre coastal property, located in the Ka’u District, in 2016 with funds from the County’s Public Access, Open Space and Natural Resources Preservation Commission (PONC) Program, along with funding from the State’s Department of Land and Natural Resources Legacy Land Conservation Program and the U.S. Fish&Wildlife Recovery Lands Acquisition Grant.
