Abstract Five recommendations are presented in this report to provide a foundation for improving shoreline planning for coastal hazards, including sea level rise, at the local level. The recommendations were developed by shoreline planners from the Counties of Maui and Hawaii and are intentionally focused on issues that can be addressed within the context of the existing County regulatory frameworks. There is an expectation by the authors that these recommendations will induce further discussion of these topics within the Maui and Hawaii County Planning Departments and/or Planning Commissions, and related actions, such as rule revisions or requests for research, will be pursued.
