Shoreline Impacts, Setback Policy and Sea Level Rise
ICAP prepared this white paper at the request of Hawaiʻi State Senator Shan Tsutsui, whose office sought a technical evaluation of Senate Bill 468, 2009 (relating to shoreline setbacks). ICAP finds that SB 468 as originally introduced would have a beneficial net impact on coastal resiliency for the State of Hawai‘i. The document includes an overview of county setback policies in Hawai‘i and a review of setback rules adopted by other US states, as well as policy solutions and strategies to enact better measures.
