Pacific Business News reported that Island School, the popular private college-preparatory school in Lihue, has sent a petition to the Hawaii Land Use Commission requesting a reclassification of all 38.4 acres of land from agricultural to urban.  Up to this point, the school has only developed 15 of its acres, as it has been limited by the restrictions of agricultural zoning.  A reclassification of the land to urban would allow for more density, making it possible to improve substantially more of the 38.4 acres.  Island School seeks to build more classrooms, a campus center and a performance arts building in the future, and anticipates that the enrollment would rise from its current enrollment of 388 students up to approximately 500 students.  The expansion is also expected to create 22 more full-time jobs.
