Hawai`i County Community Development Plans
A partnership with the Hawai`i County Office of Planning, HACBED and Islander Institute are assisting with the development of region specific Community Development Plans (CDPs) for Ka`u and Hamakua. The CDPs are intended to serve as the forum for community input into establishing County policy at the regional level and coordinating the delivery of County services to the community. In other words, CDPs create a framework for regional planning that provides residents and other stakeholders the opportunity to actively participate in planning for their communities and implementing those plans.
As the Ka`u and Hamakua CDPs are being developed, HACBED is working closely with County of Hawai`i planners to design and facilitate a community engagement process that makes CDP content accessible to residents and provides opportunities for input and spaces for community review of CDP drafts.
