Community Workshops for Historic Preservation Plan
Open-house-style workshops are scheduled this month for residents to help develop a new Maui County historic preservation plan.
Officials with the Department of Planning announced the workshops saying participants will learn about the planning process and discuss preservation issues, opportunities and priorities in developing the historic preservation plan. They’ll also have opportunities to provide feedback through a series of informational and interactive exercises as well as face-to-face conversations with the planning team and county staff.
The workshops will take place on Maui, Lānaʻi, and Molokaʻi. The date, time and location of each workshop is provided below:
- Hāna: 7 p.m. Jan. 21 in the main hall of the Hāna Community Center at 5091 Uakea Road.
- Lāhainā: 7 p.m. Jan. 22 in the Kamehameha III Elementary School cafeteria at 611 Front St., Lahaina.
- Lānaʻi: 6 p.m. Jan. 23 at the Hale Kupuna O Lānaʻi community hall at 1144 ʻIlima Ave. in Lānaʻi City.
- Molokaʻi: 7 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Kulana ʻOiwi Multi-Service Center conference room at 600 Maunaloa Highway in Kaunakakai.
There is no Central Maui workshop scheduled for this phase of the project. Central Maui residents are encouraged to attend one of the East or West Maui workshops. Anyone unable to attend a workshop can visit www.mauihistoricpreservationplan.com to learn more about preservation efforts and take an online questionnaire.
These workshops are part of the Planning Department’s effort to develop a new countywide historic preservation plan. This new plan is meant to update the original 1984 Cultural Resources Management Plan for Maui County.
