A public hearing will be held on a request for a special use permit and a conditional permit to allow for the development and operation of a transient camp in West Maui.

The Kauaula Campgrounds facility is proposed to help the transient, homeless and financially disadvantaged community according to meeting notice.

The request is being made to the State Land Use Commission by Lisa Darcy and the Hoʻomana Foundation and is proposed for location near Hokiokio Place and the Lahaina Bypass Road.

The item surfaces for review at tomorrow’s meeting (Tuesday, July 28, 2015) of the Maui Planning Commission.
