Coastal land workshops offered free islandwide
Informational workshops about coastal land issues will be offered on Oahu and the Big Island in May, according to the state Department of Land and Natural Resources.
The free two-hour workshops by the DLNR's Office of Conservation and Coastal Lands are intended for landowners, planners, regulators, developers, real estate agents and anyone who is interested. The casual workshops are intended to answer common questions regarding coastal land use.
Topics covered will include understanding state shoreline certifications, landscaping, dune restoration, beach nourishment, emergency erosion control, hazard mitigation, county shoreline setbacks and more, the department said. Previous workshops have been held on Maui, Kauai and Oahu.
