The flood hazard revisions are being proposed as part of Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMR) Case No. 17-09-0389P, for a proposed project named Hilo Senior Living along the subject area of Palai Stream.  Engineering Partners, Inc. is proposing to revise the floodway along the subject area of Palai Stream as part of a project to create a building for commercial space and a housing development for senior assisted living.
