A Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan for Central Maui will be presented to the public later this month.

“The master plan was completed in 2012 as part of the Healthy Hawaiʻi Initiative’s efforts to encourage walking and bicycling in Central Maui communities,” a county announcement said.

The plan was reportedly based on a set of design principles that included the, “promotion of safe access for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and public transportation users of all ages and abilities.”

The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Lihikai School Cafeteria in Kahului.
