Community design workshop series set for West Maui Community Plan
WEST MAUI – The County of Maui Department of Planning will host a series of community design workshops from Feb. 4 to 7, where the public can provide input on how West Maui should plan for preservation and change over the next 20 years.
Each of the four workshops will focus on a different community subarea of West Maui: Kapalua, Kaanapali, Lahaina, and Ukumehame (Ukumehame to Launiupoko).
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for registration and light refreshments, and the main program will run from 6 to 8 p.m.
Dates and locations for each subarea workshop are:
Lahaina – Monday, Feb. 4, West Maui Senior Center, 788 Pauoa St., Lahaina;
Kaanapali – Tuesday, Feb. 5, Lahaina Civic Center, 1840 Honoapiilani Highway, Lahaina;
Ukumehame – Wednesday, Feb. 6, Olowalu Plantation House, 810 Olowalu Village Road, Lahaina;
Kapalua – Thursday, Feb. 7, Maui Preparatory Academy, 4910 Honoapiilani Highway, Napili.
In a small working group format, participants will explore what areas should remain the same and what areas should be targeted for change. The public is invited to attend all four subarea workshops or the subareas they connected to the most.
An online version of the workshop also will be available at www.wearemaui.org from Feb. 1 to 10.
Input received online and at the workshops will help county staff planners create community design options for consideration in the West Maui Community Plan. The department will share the options with the community in a follow-up workshop to be announced in February.
