Turtle Bay Resort plan challenged by Defend Oahu Coalition

June 26, 2013 Destination Hawaii No Comments Email Email

egtmedia59The Defend Oahu Coalition has filed a motion asking the Hawaii Land Use Commission to hold a hearing on whether a nearly 30-year-old plan to expand the Turtle Bay Resort should be invalidated.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the organization had filed a similar motion in 2008 but LUC members didn’t garner enough votes for a decision.

In April 2010, the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled that a 1985 environmental impact statement was only valid until 2000. Since then, the property’s owners have filed a supplemental EIS and in December presented a $770 million plan for two new hotels and 590 new residential units to the community.
