Special Management Area [SMA]

Any property with in proximity to any Oahu shoreline can be considered in a Special Management Area Permit Zone. The purpose of this special permit is to help prolong the natural beauty and ecosystems of our shorelines that can be damaged by development of such properties.


I can prepare these applications; Note: these can be most extensive even for the lesser Environmental Assessment documentation that is required...Not all properties or projects will require an Environmental Impact Statement which can be more extensive.


This type of permit is now required to be part of the overall permitting process for any property subject to the SMA. If you believe your property could be subject to the requirement of submitting an SMA then click on the button and you will be able to review and/or download the current Ordinance for the inclusion of the Environmental Assessment.
