LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Kauai County is considering a proposal to transform a former bulk sugar building into a self-storage facility and construction materials recycling center.

The Garden Island reports the Planning Commission was scheduled to consider the proposal Tuesday.

Island Self Storage LLC wants to develop the 43,000-square-foot building of the vacant Nawiliwili Bulk Sugar building.

The proposal calls for the phased construction of a four-storage facility for as many as 1,650 units.

The proposal also calls for a leased, temporary materials resource recovery operation for construction company Pacific Concrete Coring and Cutting Inc., based in Lihue.

The building is owned by Gay and Robinson Inc.

State health officials want to know where storm water from the property would be discharged. They also want to know how wastewater would be treated.
