Master Planning to Resolve Hawaiian Coastal Problemsby Thomas H. Eisen, Office of State Planning, Honolulu, United States,
Abstract: Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, is an extensive estuary enclosed by a coral barrier reef. Currently, the Bay is heavily used by numerous groups for a range of different types of activities, resulting in conflicting use situations. In addition, urban land uses in the surrounding watershed adversely impact the resources of the Bay. The State legislature mandated a master planning process to recommend solutions to the problems. This paper will describe the effort to develop the Kaneohe Bay Master Plan.
