A new master plan through 2030 will be unveiled tomorrow (Friday, May 25, 2012) for pedestrians and bicyclists in central Maui.

Organizers say the plan includes a separated pedestrian and bicycle shared-use path linking Waikapu and Wailuku, as well as a network of separated bikeways and sidewalks in Kahului, and a landscaped pedestrian and bicycle esplanade along Kahului Beach Road, fronting the harbor.

The document will be presented by Chris Hart & Partners and NPAC: the Nutrition and Physical Activity Coalition of Maui County to the public at a 5 p.m. gathering at the J. Walter Cameron Center.
