The Kauai Historic Preservation Review Commission

The County of Kauai became a Certified Local Government (CLG) under provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. The U.S. Department of Interior-National Park Service via the State Dept. of Land & Nat. Resources administers the CLG program which assists local governments in promoting historic preservation endeavors. To qualify as a CLG, local government preservation activities must include: public participation and use of a qualified local review commission (Kauai Historic Preservation Review Commission), survey and inventory of historic resources and participation in State/Federal preservation activities.

The Kauai Historic Preservation Review Commission, which consists of nine members, meets on a monthly basis and is staffed by the Planning Department. Meetings usually entail project reviews at which time the KHPRC provides recommendations on various aspects of archaeological and building design review of historic resources and in-fill development. Other issues relating to the promotion of historic preservation on Kauai are also discussed.
