Regulating Paradise

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter demonstrates how the Hawaiʻi State Legislature has created a number of special-purpose agencies with independent powers to control the use of land within their geographic boundaries. In many instances, that power is exclusive and the county in which such agencies are authorized to act have little or no regulatory authority within such geographic limits. One of these agencies is the Hawaiʻi Community Development Authority (HCDA), which was created for the purpose of meeting community development needs such as housing, rental, commercial, industrial facilities, parks, and open space. Another example is the Aloha Tower Development Corporation (ATDC), formed by the legislature to oversee the redevelopment of the Aloha Tower complex and to help transform the waterfront into a “people” place.
