Posted August 25, 2022, 3:55 PM HST

Update: The Planning Department’s front counter will reopen Friday, Aug. 26. It was anticipating the counter would be closed for the rest of the week, but repairs were completed ahead of schedule. The county thanks the public for its patience.

The Planning Department’s front counter will remain closed Thursday and Friday, Aug. 25-26. Updates will be announced.

Original Story: The front counter at the county Planning Department at the Kapule Building in the Līhu‘e Civic Center will be closed Wednesday, Aug. 24, while the area undergoes repairs to damages caused by an air conditioning unit leak.

During the closure, all services will remain available; however, anyone needing in-person assistance can call 808-241-4050 and a representative will meet them outside.

Additionally, the following procedures will be in place:

  • Applicants and members of the public can contact the department at planningdepartment@kauai.gov or calling the department to submit zoning inquiries, including but not limited to zoning permit submittals, zoning determination requests and zoning violations complaints.
  • All payments to the Planning Department, including but not limited to zoning applications, enforcement actions, and permit fees can be submitted by calling the department to have a representative meet outside; mailing payments to Planning Department, Kapule Building, 4444 Rice St., Suite A473, Līhu‘e, HI 96766; or submitting payments through the mail slot outside of the Real Property Tax Assessment Office on the right-hand side of the Kapule Building.

Any payments that are submitted to the Planning Department should be in an envelope clearly marked “Planning Department” and have the respective zoning application number and/or Tax Map Key.

Updates will be announced if the closure of the found count is extended beyond Wednesday.
