Hearing date set for Hilo charter school’s permit request

Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Temporary structures are used at Connections Public Charter Schools' property in the Kaumana community in Hilo on Thursday.

It will be at least two months until the Windward Planning Commission decides whether to grant Connections New Century Public Charter School a special permit to build a campus on about 70 acres of state-owned agricultural-zoned land in Kaumana.
