Yamaguchi) <br /> Request: Amendments to Condition C & D of Change of Zone Ordinance No. 92-70 <br /> Subject: Response to Letter Dated May 8, 2009 <br /> Tax Map Key: 1-5-14-7 <br /> <br /> Per Conditions C and D of enclosed Ordinance No. 92-70, see enclosure, Hara Land Development <br /> would like to amend Conditions C and D and request a five (5) year time extension to secure Final Plan <br /> Approval and complete the construction for the proposed Pahoa Office Plaza, 15-2817 Pahoa Village <br /> Road, Pahoa, Hawaii. <br /> The non-performance of building the Pahoa Cash and Carry was due to changed market conditions <br /> not foreseen by the owner and beyond their control: the plans took 4 years to complete and the property at <br /> the NW comer of Pahoa Village Road and Highway 10 was rezoned to commercial, and Malama Market <br /> opened. <br /> The granting of the time extension would not be contrary to the General Plan or zoning code, <br /> which 'Los not changed since the original approval. <br /> The original reasons for the change of zoning are still applicable. <br /> History of the parcel: <br /> In 1992 Walter Yamaguchi, the original owner of the parcel, rezoned it from RS-15 to <br /> Commercial (CV-10) under certain Conditions (see enclosure Ordinance No. 92-70). <br /> In 2000 Hara Land Development bought the properly from Walter Yamaguchi. <br /> In 2004 . nal plans were approved for the Pahoa Cash and Carry building. <br /> However, due to the changed economic situation because the plans took 4 years to be completed, <br /> the rezoning of the property at the NW corner of Pahoa Village Road and Highway 10 to commercial, and <br /> the subsequent opening of Malama Market, the plan to construct a new Pahoa Cash and Carry, established <br /> in 1939, had to be shelved. <br /> In its place Hara Land Development would like to build PAHOA OFFICE PLAZA, see site plan <br /> and elevations. The in-demand project of 14,600 s.f. for offices (dentists, doctors, insurance, real estate, <br /> financial planners, and a dining facility) will have a Western motif design in the two (2) single story steel <br /> frame buildings on the 1.6 acre (69,696 s.f.) site. <br /> Plan n!ng DePt- <br /> <br /> Exhibi ......t_.. <br />
