The Maui Planning Commission has accepted the Final Environmental Assessment for the planned Maui Lani Shopping Center in Kahului. The 13 acre site includes plans for a food market, office space and restaurants.

In an effort to mitigate concerns, the applicant (HRT Realty) reduced the project size (by about 25,000 square feet) from approximately 130,000 square feet to the 105,098 square feet. This action allowed for an access plan which eliminates the use of Kainani Street in the historic Sand Hills neighborhood. Proposed access will be from the Maui Lani parkway and Kaahumanu Avenue instead.

Other potential impacts related to noise and nuisance effects are being mitigated through equipment enclosures and related design features. The approving agency, the Maui Planning Commission, accepted the Final EA and issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project.
