Permitting Task Force: The Kona-Kohala Chamber Board of Directors selected Permitting as one of three top priorities and focus areas. This task force was created in 2019 to address this important issue and reports to the Chamber's Economic Development Committee.
Permitting Task Force Goal: Support improvements and efficiency in the permitting process, especially as it pertains to the County of Hawai‘i procedures.
Permitting Task Force Objectives:
- Serve as a conduit to Hawaiʻi County for community input on permitting reform.
- Request that Hawaiʻi County share a ‘road map’ to the permitting process and offer regular outreach and training to the public about their permitting system.
- Seek clarity on building code interpretation and implementation from Hawaiʻi County.
Chamber members are welcome to join this task force. This is a free member benefit that enables you to have a 'seat at the table' as we work together to seek solutions for the West Hawai‘i business community.
