Koloa-Poipu Pilot Study

The purpose of this study was to examine the conditions and terms of Act 183, SLH 2005 which requires the counties to identify and map potential important agricultural lands and to review the criteria for determining important agricultural lands. In this study, we focused on the Koloa-Poipu district on Kauai. We examined the enabling legislation, reviewed the procedures and data requirements necessary for the identification of important agricultural lands, developed a set of basemaps and a database for the Koloa-Poipu district, conducted a pilot study on the Koloa-Poipu district and investigate the feasibility of using the approach and methods described in this report for other areas in the state.
