Meeting on Transportation and the West Maui Community Plan
A community meeting is planned to discuss transportation issues as they relate to the update of the West Maui Community Plan on Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the West Maui Senior Center at 788 Pauoa Street, Lahaina.
The agenda includes an open house from 5 to 5:30 p.m., a panel discussion from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., and a question and answer session from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The meeting will be hosted by The the County of Maui Department of Planning. The public is invited to learn about the community planning process, discuss transportation issues affecting West Maui, and listen to State and County transportation officials during the panel discussion.
Senior officials from the State Department of Transportation, the Maui Metropolitan Planning Organization, the County Department of Transportation, and the Maui Hotel and Lodging Association will serve on the panel.
The West Maui Community Plan guides future growth in West Maui, and is the first of Maui Island’s six community-specific plans to be updated since County Council adopted the Maui Island Plan in 2012.
The existing West Maui Community Plan was adopted in 1996. The update process involves numerous community meetings and workshops followed by the formation of a Community Plan Advisory Committee, which will review a draft updated plan and provide recommendations.
The Maui Planning Commission will then review the draft plan and provide recommendations to the Maui County Council, which ultimately adopts the plan.
