Document Description
A General Plan Amendment (Local Coastal Plan Amendment), Zone Reclassification, Urban Limit Line extension, and interpretation of environmentally sensitive habitat areas (ESHA) for six parcels making up the Samoa town site and encompassing approximately 171.7 acres. The parcels are to be part of large scale community development and revitalizing project to be carried under the Samoa Town Master Plan developed by the Samoa Pacific Group. Additional permits required for the phased implementation of the Master Plan include: Coastal Development Permits, Conditional Use Permits, Special Permits, Final Map Subdivisions, and Planned Unit Developments. The purpose of the proposed General Plan Amendment, Local Coastal Plan Amendment, and Zone Reclassification is to facilitate the implementation of the Master Plan and involves changing the land use designations consistent with the Plan. The project area is located in the Coastal Zone. In order to proceed with the project, the Department determined that a Local Coastal Plan (LCP) Amendment is required to ensure consistency with the General Plan. The LCP Amendment would add the land use designation of Business Park (MB) and Natural Resources (NR) within the proposed Samoa urban limit line and would further specify requirements for development within tsunami run-up areas.
