Housing project proposed at Maalaea
MAALAEA – The public has until Aug. 24 to comment on the draft environmental assessment for the proposed Maalaea Plantation Subdivision.
The applicant, MVI, LLC of Wailuku, seeks the necessary land use entitlement approvals to develop a residential housing subdivision consisting of 58 affordable single-family residential units and 55 market demand lots on approximately 257 acres located in the State Agriculture District mauka of Honoapiilani Highway at Maalaea.
The proposed residential project application will be processed pursuant to 201H-38, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
The proposed affordable housing units will be made available to qualified individuals earning within 80 to 120 percent of Maui’s median income (per the county Department of Housing and Human Concerns’ Affordable Sales Price Guidelines) and will have a minimum lot size of 10,000 square feet.
The proposed market demand lots will have lot sizes ranging from one to two acres and will encourage the continuation of agricultural farming within the subdivision. The proposed subdivision also includes a 2.8-acre neighborhood park.
The remaining portion of the project site that is not part of the application, consisting of approximately 85 acres, will remain in agriculture.
MVI, LLC seeks a State Land Use District Boundary Amendment and 201H-38 approval for the project.
