The Kahului Harbor Development Plan will be the focus of an upcoming public informational meeting hosted by the Hawai’i Department of Transportation.

The plan looks at possible improvements to Kahului Harbor to address near-term needs identified in the Kahului Commercial Harbor 2035 Master Plan.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Alexa Higashi Meeting Room. There will be an open house beginning at 5:30 p.m., with a formal presentation set to start at 6 p.m.

Proposed alternatives include:

  • Creating space for Less-than-Container-Loads cargo and Department of Agriculture inspections;
  • Adaptive re-use of the Old Railroad Building for the DOT Harbors Division Office and harbor user office space; and
  • Demolishing the Old Kahului Store and acquisition of additional land area for increased cargo yard efficiency.

DOT officials say the primary purpose of the meeting is to inform the public of the Kahului Harbor Development Plan process, share the possible improvements and related alternatives, and to allow for public input.
