I am VIGOROUSLY OPPOSED to the proposed Glamping project. By way of background, I was the GM of PHCA from 2000 to 2010. I am providing my testimony not only as a homeowner in Princeville...
Lorri and Tom Mull
We would like to go on record in advance of the PHCA town hall meeting on September 26, 2020 to urge the PHCA to exercise their representative and fiduciary responsibilities to oppose the proposed “glamping project” ...
Terry and Sonja Passalacqua
Princeville is a unique place with unparalleled beauty and history shows there will always be people who see -not beauty, but crass opportunism...
Mary Paterson
I would like to go on record as being very concerned about the proposed glamping development on the Woods Course. An additional 50 unplanned units will add to density, noise, traffic and more ...

Leilani Legaspi
Bill 2044 was a Bill for an Ordinance to amend Open District Designations on Zoning Map ZM-PR700 at Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii, sponsored by Ron Kouchi and unanimously passed by the Council on December 19, 2002...
Robert and Kristine Cocke
When we purchased our home, it was never disclosed to us about any future possible changes of the Makai Golf course or available development possibilities. The open space and view were the reasons for that location. We have lived here for over 40 years...
Susan Giuliano
I wish to express my concerns about the Starwood Expansion. I believe the reason the SCG has chosen the Woods greens #1,2 & 3 to expand their “rooms” is because their next phase will be to try...
Susan Humphrey-Barnett
We urge the Princeville Board to oppose this project outright. The Board should not be negotiating mitigation strategies to make “glamping” more palatable...
Bob Fried
As an owner in Princeville for the last 16 years and as one who has a residence along the Woods golf course, I am vehemently opposed to converting ANY of the Woods golf course to this Glamping proposal...
Amy Marvin
The proposed Glamping project is very disturbing. As a north shore realtor since 1986, I am so angry that this possibility was never revealed to any of my buyers...
Sherri and Robert Daniels
We are very concerned about the proposal for “glamping” in Princeville. Princeville was developed as a neighborhood for families and while vacation rentals have changed the original concept - it is still a neighborhood...
Patrick Maiani
Glamping is a soft word for Hotel or motel - resort to be built on open space reserved for Princeville residents homes views. All planned communities are required to have open space. Princeville is no exception no matter how you spin it...
Su and Peter Faklis
The Glamping resorts I am familiar with are in remote or wilderness areas not in peoples backyards! This is outrageous!...
Richard and Fradelle Teixeira
Glamping in P.V. should not be allowed. It is not fair to the homeowners. Can’t believe that the golf course can enforce all of their ridiculous rules to P.V. home owners and not even reciprocate in a neighborly fashion with decisions that effect our community...
Jack Forrest
Princeville is a mature community, fully built out except for a few vacant lots scattered throughout the area. Development of open land such as a golf course is an existential threat to both Princeville 1 and Princeville 2, including Kaiulani...
Bill Schilling
“If it shifts around like a rat, rummages like a rat, deceives like a rat why then it is rat!” Simply put, 1Hotel’s maneuvering is more akin to a community taker than that of a true community trustee...
Linda Breitstone
I am opposed to the glamping proposal! With all of the hotels and Airbnb’s in Princeville, I put my life in danger each day as I attempt to cross Ka Haku Road without getting run over by tourists in a hurry...
Deborah Pate
The proposal by the Starwood Capital Group for developing 3 holes of the Makai Golf Course is a terrible idea...
Dorothy and Richard Perry
I am astounded that this is a serious proposal. This development would negatively affect the entire Princeville community and set a precedent that endangers many other green areas...
Fern Merle-Jones
My husband and I have lived on Kaua’i for 42 years. In that time, we have seen major changes in all areas of life. However, the idea of introducing Glamping to Princeville is one terrible idea...
