Lana'i Community Plan Update


The Lana`i Community Plan Update will revise the existing 1998 Lana`i Community Plan, adding new elements required by MCC 2.80B while taking policy direction from the Countywide Policy Plan. The updated Lana`i Community Plan will consist of a vision statement, goals, objectives, policies and actions that will guide the desired direction of the island's future. Technical studies and issue papers provide data in support of policy recommendations. The final document will also include a detailed implementation and monitoring plan.
