Community Coalition Kaua’i (CCK) was formed in the Summer 2016 to specifically track the process of the new General Plan for Kaua’i. CCK was borne out of the common concern of many individuals from around the island that they were not being adequately heard through the County’s choreographed public input process.
Imagine an island where basic needs like housing and access to a diversity of income generation opportunities are available for all. Imagine a self-sufficient island with a farm to table food economy. Imagine an island that represents a living model of our rich Hawaiian cultural heritage that honors both keiki and kupuna.

For Kauai’s Future, for our Keiki.
THE COUNTY OF KAUA’I NEW GENERAL PLAN DOES NOT REPRESENT THE URGENT NEEDS, FUTURE DESIRES, OR EXTENSIVE INPUT OF THE RESIDENTS OF KAUA’I.
We, the undersigned, urge the Kaua’i County Council to return the General Plan to the Planning Department to develop a General Plan that first and foremost reflects the urgent needs, interests and quality of life factors that the residents of Kaua’i require and deserve.
We do not need a General Plan that was written by and for developers and the tourism industry.
We do need a General Plan that will create balanced, sustainable growth, diversified job opportunities, and will protect Kaua’i’s environment, rural character and quality of life.
Sign the petition (above) to ask the County Council to fix the general plan and share it on your social media profiles.
Work with your Neighborhood Association or Community Organization to ask the County Council to repair the new General Plan to give communities control over decisions that affect the communities.
