The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, in conjunction with the Hawai‘i Department of Transportation, Gov. David Ige’s State Homeless Coordinator and Homeless Support Services on Kaua’i, removed unpermitted campers and unauthorized structures from DHHL properties in Anahola, Kaua‘i, on Aug. 21, 2019.

DHHL notices to vacate the premises were issued on Monday, Aug. 19, 2019.

The areas include portions of Aliomanu Road, where the roadway erodes into the ocean, Kealia Road/Kuhio Highway and Anahola Beach Park, as well as an area across the street from the beach park.

“The Department takes the decision to remove unauthorized individuals off of DHHL lands as a serious but necessary effort,” said Hawaiian Homes Commission Chair William J. Aila Jr. “The department thanks the collaborative effort of the department and other agencies involved in ensuring safety and transitional efforts for the individuals impacted by the removal.”
