Public Invited to Participate in Community Meetings, August 16 and 17
LĪHU‘E, KAUA‘I – The Hawai‘i Tourism Authority (HTA) and Kaua‘i Visitors Bureau (KVB) invites the public to attend upcoming community meetings to learn about the plan and steps being taken to manage tourism and address visitor behaviors that adversely affect Kaua‘i’s communities. The meetings will be held on Tuesday, August 16, and Wednesday, August 17 (see schedule below).
The initiatives being worked on are a result of the input provided by the community in the Kaua‘i Destination Management Action Plan (2021-2023) which focuses on solutions to help rebuild, redefine and reset the direction of tourism over a three-year period. Actions are being implemented in collaboration with numerous community, industry, and government partners. They include educating visitors about mindful travel prior to and during their visit, supporting increased management and protection of the island’s natural resources, investing in the perpetuation of Hawaiian culture, supporting local businesses, and managing hotspot locations.
