Kauai Coconut Coast Resorts Receive Approval

The Garden Island newspaper reports that the Kauai Planning Commission has approved 2 beachfront projects on Kauai's East Side after a court ruling that previous decisions were unconstitutional.  The two projects receiving approval are the Coconut Plantation Village and the Coconut Beach Resort.  The first will have 192 multi-family units and the second will have 343.  Both will have a few hotel rooms as well.

I have not heard whether the projects are actually going to move forward, a question in my mind given the current economic conditions.  However the article had no information to the contrary.  I'll report more as I hear it including sales information.

The Garden Island article is located HERE.
