Planning Department Seeks Public Input on West Maui Community Plan
The County of Maui Department of Planning will host a series of community design workshops from Feb. 4 to 7. The workshops will give the public the chance to offer their input on how West Maui should plan for preservation and change over the next 20 years.
Each of the workshops will focus on a different subarea of West Maui, which include Kapalua, Kā`anapali, Lāhainā, and Ukumehame (from Ukumehame to Launiupoko).
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for sign-in and light refreshments. The main program will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The dates and locations for each subarea workshop are as follows:
- Lāhainā: Monday, Feb. 4, West Maui Senior Center, 788 Pauoa St., Lāhainā
- Kāʻanapali: Tuesday, Feb. 5, Lāhainā Civic Center, 1840, Honoapi`ilani Hwy., Lāhainā
- Ukumehame: Wednesday, Feb. 6, Olowalu Plantation House, 810 Olowalu Village Rd., Lāhainā
- Kapalua: Thursday, Feb. 7, Maui Preparatory Academy, 4910 Honoapi`ilani Hwy., Lāhainā
Participants will work in small groups to explore which areas should remain the same and which areas should be targeted for change. The public is invited to attend as many workshops as they prefer.
There will also be an online workshop from Feb. 1 to 10. The input from both the workshops and online will help county planners create design options for consideration in the West Maui community plan. The department will share the options with the public in a follow-up workshop later in February.
General planning information can be found on the departmentʻs website.
