Scott H. Ezer
Years Experience: 41
Scott Ezer, Vice-President, joined HHF in 1989 and became a principal in 2001. While at HHF, he has focused on community planning, policy planning, site analysis, environmental impact assessment, and land use entitlements at all levels of government in the State of Hawai‘i. Scott’s work experience has included major projects on O‘ahu, Maui, Kaua‘i, and Hawai‘i Island as well as Guam and Midway Atoll for a variety of private- and public-sector clients. He has recently served as the Principal-in-Charge for the Important Agricultural Lands project for the City and County of Honolulu. While working with the City and County of Honolulu Department of Land Utilization (now the Department of Planning and Permitting), prior to his affiliation with HHF, he gained a wide variety of administrative zoning experience and was a co-author of the Land Use Ordinance, the zoning ordinance for the City and County of Honolulu. Scott was also project manager for the revision of several of Honolulu’s urban design regulations, including those for Punchbowl, Diamond Head, the Hawai‘i Capital District, and Chinatown.
When he is not working and planning projects, Scott spends as much time as he can pursuing a life-long passion and interest in ocean activities.
