County urges smaller signs for Kona hotel

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) A Hawaii County Council committee is rejecting a developer's plan to install signs for the Big Island's first Holiday Inn. The Seattle-based developers want to install signs for the Kailua-Kona hotel that would be up to nearly four times bigger the maximum allowed.

Kona Hospitality, Han Gyu Kim and Mihyung Kim have proposed to erect three signs, which would be 43-square-feet, 32-square-feet and 18-square feet. But the county's sign ordinance allows one sign per business or street frontage, with a maximum allowed size of 12 square feet.

The public works and parks committee advised the developers to consult with the Kailua Village Design Commission and come back with plans for smaller signs. The three-story, $10 million Holiday Inn Express & Suites is expected to be completed by fall.
