Hawaii Supreme Court to hear Community Associations of Hualalai Inc. v. Leeward Planning Commission, et al.
The Hawaii Supreme Court will hear the case of The Community Associations of Hualalai Inc. v. Leeward Planning Commission, et al. at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 3.
The Community Associations of Hualalai Inc. came to the Hawaii Supreme Court after it argued an earlier decision. "This case involves a direct appeal, pursuant to Act 48, in which Community Associations of Hualalai Inc., contends that the Hawaii Leeward Planning Commission erred when it allowed the County of Hawaii planning director to prematurely terminate a Chapter 205 contested case. ... Appellant argues that the contested case was terminated 'mid-stream,' over the appellant’s objections, and before the appellant had the opportunity to be admitted as a party or to present evidence and argument in the contested case," the court states.
The original case revolved around an application by appellee-applicant Bolton Inc. to engage in various types of activity on its land, including a flood channelization project.
