ʻOʻoma Beachside Village – Assistance in EIS Preparation and Review, Landowner Representative, Outreach and Permit Processing
ʻOʻoma Beachside Village is proposed as a diverse coastal residential community, designed as a walkable, interconnected, environmentally-conscious, mixed-use community with diverse housing options.
In total, the project proposes 950 to 1,200 homes with a broad spectrum of affordability in housing, including market, workforce/gap and affordable housing opportunities with a wide range of housing alternatives, including single-family homes, live-work units, multi-family dwellings and custom home sites.
Located makai of Queen Kaʻahumanu Highway and oceanfront – an area often reserved for resort development – ʻOʻoma Beachside Village is completely different from all prior development proposals for the site and will be focused on the primary resident market.
Hoʻokuleana LLC assisted in the preparation and review of the EIS for the project. In addition, Peter Young served as the landowner representative for the ʻOʻoma project and participated on the core review team for the EIS preparation and review.
Peter Young interacted and worked with Hawaiʻi county and state administrations and various department personnel, assisted in interacting and working with the public groups and provided assistance, review and recommendations on related public processes and documentation (including, but not limited to, various stages of EIS and permitting.) He prepared and processed a CDUA for shoreline protection issues, including an interim preservation plan associated with that project.
Community outreach included working with the ʻOʻoma Beachside Village Citizen Advisory Committee and Hui O Na Kupuna (a native Hawaiian cultural group.)
