New commercial center planned for Lihue area

The Garden Island newspaper published a lengthy article today on a proposed commercial center in the Lihue area that will include a new Safeway store plus numerous other businesses and offices.  Currently, Kauai is served by multiple local grocery chains plus one Safeway located in Kapaa.  This would be the 2nd Safeway and it would be located near the islands center of commerce, Lihue. 

The planning Commission held a public hearing yesterday where residents had a chance to voice concerns over impact to the neighborhood.  The parcel to be developed is about 23 acres adjacent to large commercial outlets of Kukui Grove shopping center, Costco, and Home Depot.  It is to be located across Nuhou Road from Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School and a new YMCA.  If approved, it's planned to open in roughly 2 years.

Aloha!

Hi Richard, I suppose the wheels of progress must grind forward.  Are there people there that don't want the store coming in?  You mentioned that there is already another Safeway there.  Thanks for the info on your area!

Hi Sandy - There is a large element that doesn't want any new development but I have not seen them weigh in on this project yet.  So far, concern seems to center on proximity to the school and hazards therein.

Our one Safeway is a 45 minute drive each way for me anf an hour for some.  Our other grocery stores are smaller and don't offer a full selection.  For example, until Costco opened a couple of years ago, it was usually impossible to buy a ham.  But some like it that way and don't want change.  Costco itself was a controversial issue and laws now prohibit new stores of that size.

Aloha, Richard

Hi Mellie,

 

Good for you.  I've not heard anything about it in recent news.

 

Aloha,
