Soft deadline sought for Big Island general plan

By Associated Press

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) County planners on Hawaii's Big Island can't meet the deadline for the county's General Plan update, so they want to eliminate the deadline from the law

West Hawaii Today says the Hawaii County Council Planning Committee Wednesday voted 7-2 Wednesday to recommend changing the county code wording.

The committee wants the code changed so that a comprehensive review of the plan must be initiated by the Planning Department no more than 10 years after the adoption of the a previous plan.

Under the current code, new plan amendments must be submitted to the county council within 10 years.

The recommendation still faces votes at the county council level.

The general plan was last updated in February 2005 and is set to have a new update completed by February 2015.
