SMA Minor Construction

New BMPs as designed in the SMA Minor permit were put in place before any sitework commenced. The grading permit was closed on July 18, 2022.  The electrical permit was closed on June 21, 2023 and the overall permit closed on June 30, 2023 after a final inspection by DPP and HECO. Signs were posted facing both inside and outside the property directing pedestrians to use the crosswalk at Pupukea Road. The Pahoe Road fence was completed on August 19th, 2021.

Tenant Compliance

All trucks completed their required two moves in July. Single-use plastics, plastic straws, and non-reef-safe sunscreen continue to be prohibited for all tenants. Tour buses continue to be prohibited from the site. All tenants have been notified to remind customers to use the crosswalk at Pupukea Road when crossing Kamehameha Highway. Any signs within 30 feet of the highway have been removed.

Baseline Inspection Report and Compliance

Inspectors from DPP visited the property unannounced in February 2021 and conducted a baseline inspection of the entire property. Hanapohaku and others received the report on February 23rd, 2021. Hanapohaku has since reviewed the report including the photos and required changes described in it. All tents required to be removed were immediately taken down. The signs included in the report have all been removed. The electrical violations have been addressed and are awaiting a final inspection at the completion of the SMA minor construction.


On July 14, 2023 Hanapohaku received an approval for its Conditional Use Permit for Joint Development with its neighboring property and submitted an executed agreement with the Bureau of Conveyances.
