Perhaps this is old news but I found this today.

Kahaluu condo timeshare project gets green light - http://westhawaiitoday.com/news/local-news/kahaluu-condo-timeshare-project-gets-green-light

Planned Development In Kahalu‘u Posts Final EA - http://www.bigislandvideonews.com/2015/09/22/planned-development-in-kahaluu-posts-final-ea/

From http://oeqc.doh.hawaii.gov/Shared D...-Parcel-26-at-Kahaluu-Residential-Project.pdf

Towne Development of Hawai‘i, Inc., proposes a residential project with approximately 306 multifamily time share units on a 42-acre property known as Parcel 26, located mauka of Ali‘i Drive, in Kahalu‘u, Kona. The project will be developed as CPR units and sold as time share units, which depending on market conditions may be sold instead as whole units.The project includes internal utilities and driveways, swimming pools and recreational facilities, and landscaping. Connections to wastewater systems will occur on Ali‘i Drive.

There are no threatened or endangered plant species, with vegetation consisting mainly of introduced species. Implementation of already approved archaeological preservation preserve plans, data recovery, burial treatment and monitoring plans will mitigate impacts to historic sites. There is no known current use of the portion of the property proposed for development for gathering, ceremonial or other cultural purposes, and the project would not affect shoreline uses.

The three-story multi-family structures will not interfere with views to or from the shoreline, as the project site is situated in a topographic hollow behind one to four rows of properties already developed with one to four-story structures and mature landscaping. The required adherence to the Keauhou Village & Kahalu‘u Village Residential Design Guidelines will ensure conformance with the cohesive vision for the physical appearance of Keauhou and ensure high-quality, culturally vibrant and sustainable community development. Traffic on Ali‘i Drive will increase as a result of the project but congestion will not significantly increase. The project is not expected to have a negative impact on groundwater, coastal water resources or biology. The property is located outside the flood zone

I've always liked that little beach park. But it's hard to imagine how much more crowded it will become with a timeshare development across the street.
