DLNR leases lands in Hilo, Hawaii at Banyan Drive and in the Kanoelehua Industrial Area.  Revenue from these leases supports important DLNR programs, including those conducted by the Division of Forestry and Wildlife, Division of State Parks, Engineering Division, Office of Conservation and Coastal Lands, and Commission on Water Resource Management.

One of the leases at Banyan Drive has expired and has been placed on a month-to-month revocable permit. Other leases at Banyan Drive and in the Kanoelehua Industrial Area will expire in the next several years. In anticipation of the expiration of these leases, DLNR commissioned studies to provide information to assist with the Department’s planning for the future of these areas. The studies are available below for public review and comment.
