Aloha Mayor Arakawa,

Q: I’ve been seeing campaign signs posted along Maui Lani Parkway. Is that even allowed?

A: No, it’s not allowed, as the signs you mention were posted within a county right-of- way.

County, state and federal properties are restricted, and permission must be granted for signs to be posted on private property.

If you see a sign that seems out of place, such as at the school, you can let the candidate know.


You can also file a Request for Service (RFS) through the county (, which will get routed to the zoning inspector to look into any zoning violations.
