Once the epicenter for Hawaii’s emerging sugar industry, Old Koloa Town’s historical buildings and local feel are embraced and adored. Tree-lined streets feature beautifully restored buildings that are home to a burgeoning restaurant and shopping scene. The future of Koloa looks very bright: The County of Kauai Department of Planning preserves its character through the South Kauai Community Plan and also assures that neighboring Omao and Lawai maintain their rural roots. With an emphasis on Form Based Code—development regulations that promote predictable building results and high-quality public spaces by focusing on physical from vs. separation of uses—Koloa is set to be a neighborhood to watch in years to come.
