Hilo charter school's build plans hit permit snag

By 67AM KPUA News

HILO, Hawaii (AP) A hearing officer has advised the Hawai`i County Planning Commission to deny a special permit to a Hilo charter school that wants to build a new campus.

A lawyer for Connections New Century Public Charter School said he expects the county's Windward Planning Commission to accept the recommendation and deny the permit at its May 1 meeting. He says the school will appeal that decision to the 3rd Circuit Court.

The school wants to build a new school and dormitories on 70 acres agricultural land it was given by the state Department of Land and Natural Resources.

The hearing officer's report says that at full build-out the campus would need more water than it could access.
