Hawaii opens database of land information to public
HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii officials have finally laid out an inventory of land owned by the state and who pays to use it in a new statewide public online database.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources recently finished what it called a “monumental” task after more than a decade of work.
Among things the Public Land Trust Information System makes easy to view are tenants and the rent they pay for state land or buildings, fees for using submerged lands and even fees for trespassing on public property.
Revenue from camping permits and weddings on state land also can be found.
The public can see which agencies own and use state land, and whether the county or federal government owns a property.
The Public Land Trust Information System can be viewed at pltis.hawaii.gov.
