Year Completed: 2015
Project Scope: 

PVT Land Company owns and operates a successful integrated solid waste management facility along the Island of Oahu’s Waianae Coast.  This facility is the only construction and demolition (C&D) debris facility on the Island of Oahu.  PVT Land Company retained Pedersen Planning Consultants to prepare a socio-economic impact assessment of a proposed expansion of PVT Land Company’s ongoing recycling operations, the height of existing land contours, and the installation of additional renewable energy facilities.

Pedersen Planning Consultants (PPC) examined selected demographic and economic trends on the Island of Oahu and Waianae Coast.  PPC also inventoried land uses within about 0.5 mile of the solid waste management facility. 

PPC conducted interviews of various community leaders along the Waianae Coast in order to determine what benefits and/or undesirable impacts they anticipated from the Proposed Action, as well as any actions that PVT Land Company should take if the Proposed Action is implemented.  PPC also evaluated community concerns expressed from earlier public hearings and surveys conducted by the Hawaii Department of Health.
While impacts to population trends and local land uses were not anticipated, PPC did expect the Proposed Action to generate substantive economic benefits to Oahu’s overall economy.  PPC applied the use of the IMPLAN model to calculate direct, indirect and induced economic benefits.
