Deliberations Resume on Central Maui Growth Boundaries
By Maui Now Staff
Deliberations will continue this week on the inaugural Maui Island Plan.
The Maui County Council’s General Plan Committee will review the Directed Growth Plan for the Wailuku-Kahului region in a special meeting on March 14, at 1:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber.
The region is contained in Chapter 8 of the draft plan, and includes proposed rural and urban growth boundaries for the area.
If the Committee does not complete its work on the area maps on Wednesday, the meeting could be recessed and reconvened on Thursday.
“I commend my colleagues for their continued diligence in working on the Maui Island Plan,” said Committee Chair Gladys C. Baisa. “The potential for extra meeting time next week could help us make needed progress toward completing our work on this important document,” she said in a statement.
The Maui Island Plan is part of the County’s ongoing 2030 General Plan Update.
The first phase of the update was the Countywide Policy Plan, approved by Ordinance 3732 in 2010.
Community plans for Lanai, Molokai, Kahoolawe and the six regions on Maui will follow the Maui Island Plan.
