By News Release @ 8:16 PM :: 4250 Views :: Land Use


Panel Tasked with Creating Best Practices

News Release from DLNR, February 18, 2016

(HONOLULU) – A task force of eight has been appointed by DLNR Chair Suzanne Case to review the department’s revocable permit process, permit status, and to recommend changes to ensure the process serves the public trust and provides transparency, inclusiveness and consistency.

Case explained, “This panel of experts will focus on the reasons for revocable permits versus leases or other dispositions, on opportunities for competition, the duration of revocable permit terms, pricing (including establishment of value and any reasons for discounted value), and a review of all current long-term revocable permits.”

Task force members are:

Chris Yuen-Board of Land and Natural Resources member
Paula Harris-Real property professional
Scott Glenn-Office of Environmental Quality Control
Jeff Pearson-DLNR Water Deputy
Administrators or designees of these DLNR Divisions:
Land, Boating and Ocean Recreation (DOBOR), State Parks, and Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW)

The task force is expected to identify best practices and to articulate the principles to be applied.  It will also update the Board of Land and Natural Resources (BLNR) on its review process and submittal forms and propose specific revocable permits for reconsideration by the BLNR as appropriate.  Additionally the panel may recommend implementation of administrative rules that govern the issuance of revocable permits. 

The committee is expected to report its findings and recommendations to the chairs of the Hawaii State Senate Water, Land and Agriculture Committee and the State House Water and Land Committee by the end of April.  

New practices for revocable permits are expected to be in place by June 30, 2016.
