Planning Committee to hold district meetings to receive input on Home Business Bill

WAILUKU, Hawaii – The Planning Committee will hold six public meetings from Oct. 28 to Dec. 3 to receive input on the pending Home Business Bill, Councilmember Don Couch announced today. 

Councilmember Couch, who chairs the committee, said the Council is considering legislation to permit and regulate home-based businesses in certain zoning districts. He said the committee will review and discuss allowable types of home businesses and develop appropriate regulations for particular operations.

“I want to encourage entrepreneurship and support residents who want to earn a living from home,” Councilmember Couch said. “However, we need to address what constitutes a ‘nuisance’ or other inappropriate commercial activities that potentially impact community character and quality of life for neighbors.”
District Meetings
The meetings are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

Meeting dates and locations are as follows:
Residents from Lanai may contact the Lanai District office at (808) 565-7094 for assistance in submitting testimony.

The public is encouraged to attend. Meeting agendas and the bill are available on the Planning Committee website at

For more information, please contact Councilmember Couch’s office at (808) 270-7108 or via e-mail at
