Anahola. PC: Department of Hawaiian Home Lands

“Unpermitted campers” and “unauthorized structures” were removed from Department of Hawaiian Home Lands properties in Anahola, Kauaʻi on Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019.

The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands conducted the enforcement in conjunction with the Department of Transportation, Governor David Ige’s State Homeless Coordinator, and Homeless Support Services on Kauaʻi.

DHHL reports that it issued notices to vacate the premises on Monday, Aug. 19, 2019.

The areas include portions of ʻAliomanu Road where the roadway erodes into the ocean, Keālia Road/Kūhiō Highway, and Anahola Beach Park, as well as an area across the street from the beach park.

“The Department takes the decision to remove unauthorized individuals off of DHHL lands as a serious but necessary effort,” said Hawaiian Homes Commission Chair William J. Aila Jr. “The Department thanks the collaborative effort of the Department and other agencies involved in ensuring safety and transitional efforts for the individuals impacted by the removal.”


Officials with the DHHL say any unclaimed property will be handled in accordance with 171-31.5, HRS.
