West Maui Community Plan Resource Papers are Available
The County of Maui Department of Planning invites the public to review technical resource papers and provide input for the update of the West Maui Community Plan.
The technical resource papers, prepared by the County, are background documents that cover a range of topics. The papers provide a snapshot of West Maui’s existing conditions and highlight future needs, key challenges, and potential strategies and actions that could be pursued. The first set of papers available for review include housing, water, and wastewater. Other topics will be made available over the next few months.
The technical resource papers provide a great way for the community to review information on important topics and provide their feedback in preparation for upcoming land use workshops. The papers are accessible through the County’s community planning website www.wearemaui.org. The County encourages the public to read through the papers and answer accompanying questions on the website.
The technical resource papers, upcoming land use workshops, and the community’s input will serve as the base from which the plan is drafted.
The West Maui Community Plan will guide future growth in West Maui, and is the first of Maui Island’s six regional community plans to be updated since the adoption of the Maui Island Plan in 2012. The existing West Maui Community Plan was adopted in 1996. The update process has and will continue to involve numerous community meetings and workshops. The review process formally begins with the Community Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) which will review a draft updated plan and provide recommendations. The Maui Planning Commission will then review the draft updated plan, and the Maui County Council will review and adopt the updated plan.
