A “Baker’s Dozen” Land Policy Agenda for the Fiftieth State
This introductory chapter discusses how land use in Hawaiʻi continues to be the most regulated in the United States. The costs associated with holding and developing land for a long time are considerable, and this drives up the price of virtually anything connected with land development. Combine this with regulatory schemes with increasingly large numbers of so-called public interest groups that lay claim both to stakeholder status in the land use process and a veto power over the ultimate decision, and there arises an unhealthy brew that threatens the economic future of the Fiftieth State. Commenced in order to bring order and sense to the development of land, the regulation of land use has become a complex process, often equally frustrating to the public and private sectors alike.
