Purpose | Identify Priority Recovery Goals
- We asked the question: "What changes and impacts from the Kīlauea eruption have you seen and/or experienced that have changed and/or affected the Puna CDP Goals?"
Reach | 1,000+ Community Members
- We engaged community members between December 2018 - May 2019 through community-based non-profit organizations, schools, faith-based organizations, employers, farmer's markets and resident-organized talk story events.
Outcomes | High-Level Priority Recovery Goals
- The high-level goal areas below were affirmed by the community and unanimously recommended as priority recovery goals by the Puna CDP Action Committee on May 21, 2019, with the following motion:
The Puna CDP Action Committee affirms the PCDP priority goals -- Village Town Centers, Infrastructure, Natural & Cultural Resource Management, and Health & Well-Being -- that are consistent with its February 8, 2017, letter to the Planning Director and recommends these goals as priority recovery goals for the Kīlauea Eruption Recovery planning process.
