LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - A committee supporting restoration of a Kauai resort made famous by Elvis Presley has pulled an online petition.

The Garden Island reports the Save Coco Palms Committee removed the petition a few hours after it went up Wednesday.

The shuttered resort was made famous by the 1961 Presley move "Blue Hawaii." It was damaged by a 1992 hurricane and has become an eyesore on Kauai's busiest corridor.

Ordinances approved by Kauai County retained a provision for Coco Palms restoration as a nonconforming structure but Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. wants the measure repealed.

The Kauai Planning Commission voted Tuesday to transmit the proposed repeal to the county council.

County spokeswoman Beth Tokioka says Carvalho wants to see movement on the property toward cleaning it and progressing toward meaningful re-use.
