Mayor Peter Carlisle today signed a bill into law that updates the North Shore’s sustainable communities plan that Carlisle said will “keep country country.”
The plan covers the area from Kaena Point to Kawela Bay and was unanimously approved by the City Council on April 20.
Other regional plans that will guide city land use are coming up for hearings later this year.
“We understand it’s important for the North Shore community to keep country country,” Carlisle said. “The key elements of the plan’s vision addresses protection of agriculture, open space and natural and cultural resources and the provision of adequate infrastructure.”
The last North Shore plan was adopted by the City Council in 2000.
