Natural Environment Coastal Report

The intent of this report is to provide sufficient environmental, ecological, and natural resource information for policy makers to make informed recommendations and decisions for the use, maintenance and management of Lipoa Point, Honolua Bay, and its associated coastline on the northwestern shores of Maui. The document also provides a brief regulatory overview specific to the property so as to frame the likely limitations and opportunities for use of the property in the future by the State of Hawaii. The document has been informed from input from a number of excellent, in-depth, reports and various collected studies and personal interviews.  Where appropriate, mitigation measures to reduce impacts, strategies to avoid coastal hazards, and prudent management actions are recommended and described in detail.
