Planning Commission has approved a new version of a bill that would limit most commercial camping opportunities in non-resort-zoned areas, a report said.

The bill will be brought forward to Kaua’i County Council, where it was first introduced back in April. It was first introduced by council member Luke Evslin and council Vice Chair Mason Chock.

The proposed law differentiates between undeveloped campgrounds and those that are developed and the areas where the use is permitted.

The legislation defines an undeveloped campground as used by guests and property owners who are not commercially camping. The type of campground described would not be a permanent structure and would not generate revenue.

A campground that is developed would permit permanent structures and bathrooms and be constructed so that it could be “used, let or rented for temporary commercial occupancy by campers.”

The bill has gained widespread support across the island, with the majority coming in the form of North Shore residents in Princeville, who believe it will end the 50 tent glamping project that is being proposed on land that is open-zoned on the Makai Golf Course from Starwood Capital Group. A majority of the evidence was focused on the proposed glamping project’s effect on creating natural areas.
