The Department of Land and Natural Resources is no longer planning to pursue a mooring project in Kona’s Keauhou Bay.

DLNR officials were considering replacing nine existing moorings with sixteen pillars.  But there was community opposition, for reasons ranging from safety and congestion to cultural practices.  DLNR Chair Suzanne Case says that made them change their plans.

The Division of Boating and Recreation plans to file the “no-action” option outlined in the draft this week.
