CULTURAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (CIA) KEAUHOU BAY MANAGEMENT PLAN ASM Affiliates is preparing a CIA to inform an Environmental Impact Statement being prepared for the proposed Kamehameha Schools (KS) Keauhou Bay Management Plan (KBMP). The project area is roughly 29-acres surrounding Keauhou Bay, Keauhou 1 and 2 Ahupua’a, North Kona, Hawai’i Island. The KBMP will provide near (10 years) and long-term (20 years) management and land use recommendations that are consistent with KS Strategic Plan 2020- Kuhanauna and the Draft West-Hawai’i Regional Action Plan, while also responding to community issues within KS kuleana. The KBMP will guide and prioritize KS actions for future planning, improvement, and operations at Keauhou Bay. ASM is seeking consultation with community members that have long-standing cultural connections to this area, might have knowledge of traditional cultural uses of the proposed project area; or who are involved in any ongoing cultural practices that may be occurring on or in the general vicinity of the project area. If you have and are willing to share any such information, please contact Lokelani Brandt lbrandt@asmaffiliates.com, phone (808) 969-6066, mailing address ASM Affiliates 507A E. Lanikaula St., Hilo, HI 96720. (WHT1357563 1/23/22)
