Summary of Proposed Key Changes to the Kalaeloa Rules

The next steps:

  • Revise the Administrative Draft Rules based on Board and community input,
  • Bring the Draft Rules back to the HCDA Board (date TBD), and
  • Join the Draft Master Plan & Rules together and commence the public hearing process.


The original Kalaeloa Master Plan was adopted on March 1, 2006, and the Kalaeloa Community Development District Rules were adopted on September 11, 2012 (Chapter 215 of Title 15, Hawaii Administrative Rules).  The Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA) is working to develop a Master Plan Update that reflects the changing needs of the community.

We recognize that the vision for Kalaeloa cannot be achieved without meaningful community involvement, and commit to integrate community needs and interests into the redevelopment process.

The Plan and Rules amendment effort is being approached in a two-part process that will first revise the Plan, which will then govern the necessary changes to the Rules.  Once the Plan and Rules have undergone their respective planning processes for amendment, both documents are required to go through a formal public hearing process, pursuant to Chapter 15-219, subchapter 4, Hawaii Administrative Rules, and Title 8, Chapter 91, Hawaii Revised Statutes.

The HCDA is working with a consultant team lead by Torti Gallas + Partners to develop a Master Plan Update for this historic area. The public is encouraged to participate in the visioning and planning process to direct growth and development in Kalaeloa.  In early 2021, prior to drafting Plan amendments, the HCDA staff, along with Torti Gallas, held many individual stakeholder meetings and conducted interviews with government agencies that are located in the Kalaeloa CDD. 

In July 2021, the HCDA staff hosted an initial virtual public meeting to discuss the outcome of the earlier community meetings and interviews and to solicit feedback on the anticipated direction of the Plan amendments.

On June 1, 2022, the “Administrative Draft Kalaeloa Community Development District Master Plan” was presented to this Authority by our consultants from Torti Gallas + Partners, Inc.

On Monday, June 6, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. a virtual community meeting was held, where HCDA staff presented a Draft of the proposed Kalaeloa Master Plan amendments.
