County of Maui Disaster Area Restrictions have been lifted for business in Zone 5A, which is the Old Lahaina Lūʻau anchored parcel along Front Street. Access is via the Lahaina Cannery Mall through the Keawe Street entrance only. All other entrance points are blocked off.

Both Safeway and Longs Drugs in the Lahaina Cannery Mall were opened two weeks ago on Sept. 13, 2023.

 Once a fire has burned through an area, many dangers may remain. It’s important to be aware of the hazards and know what to look for when reentering. For full state Department of Health and Environmental Protection Agency health and safety details, visit www.mauirecovers.org.

Entry into the Lahaina Wildfire Disaster area remains prohibited unless authorized by law, due to health and safety risks and to protect against criminal property damage. The Lahaina disaster area, which holds hazardous debris, includes the area delineated by government-placed barriers, according to Mayor Richard Bissen’s Third Emergency Proclamation Relating to Wildfires effective Aug. 15. 

The Keawe Street entrance to the Lahaina Cannery Mall is open. This is the access point to get to the Old Lahaina Lūʻau.
