This weekend, if the weather forces you to spend more time indoors than you originally planned, you might want to consider perusing Olowalu Town LLC’s new and massive environmental impact statement. It’s all online, in its thousand-plus page glory.
The weight of the EIS is fitting such a project, which as this excerpt from the EIS intro points out, will change the Westside in dramatic ways:
At final build-out, the Master Plan will consist of approximately 1,500 residential dwelling units to be built concurrent with appropriate infrastructure in phases spread out over a period of approximately 10 years. There will be a wide variety of single-family and multi-family dwelling types, including houses, apartments, townhouses, live-work units, cottages, rural homes and farmsteads, to be offered at a wide range of income levels, including both rental and fee ownership. A substantial portion of the homes are planned for much-needed affordable housing and senior living.
Anyway, here are links to pdf images of the statement (warning: these are large files):
The state Land Use Commission (LUC) will be taking comments on the EIS up to April 21, 2012. For more information, please contact Dan Davidson at the LUC at 808-587-3826.
