Virtual Vision Workshops announced for South Maui

By Staff | Jan 22, 2021

WAILUKU — The County of Maui Planning Department last week announced that it will host virtual Vision Workshops this month for the South Maui Community Plan update.

Members of the South Maui community are encouraged to attend one of these workshops to brainstorm ideas with their neighbors and envision what South Maui should look and feel like in 20 years.

All four workshops will have the same agenda, so people are asked to sign up for only one workshop (so that as many people as possible can participate).

The workshops will take place on the Zoom video-conferencing platform on the following dates and times:

Thursday, Jan. 21, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. (register at this link:https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZArfu6vrTwiH9ekFr2ZTmh7dRyB4Mr635SB);

Saturday, Jan. 23, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. (register at this link:https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEudO6hrT4oGtFiTXVIcpRB57OWZsLyw0H4);

Tuesday, Jan. 26, from 12 to 1:30 p.m. (register at this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUocu-rrjgtH9Ml5ro4AD7KYXwbKwnOsGj6);

Wednesday, Jan. 27, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. (register at this link:https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEucuqqqD4sHdNcGg1tp_Kvsdgvt6m8umJE).

Clicking on the links will take you to a registration form for that meeting date.

The county will accept registrations until each workshop is full. Each of the workshops has a maximum capacity of 30 people to allow everyone participating time to share their ideas.

The county may add more workshop dates based on interest. “Even while our community is working hard to stop the spread of COVID-19, we must still plan for the future,” said Mayor Michael Victorino.

Those community members who are unable to attend the virtual workshops are encouraged to share their ideas by participating in the self-directed, online version of the vision workshop at https://southmaui.wearemaui.org/get-involved-vision-survey/.

The online workshop will be available through Feb. 7.

Additionally, organizations like neighborhood associations, youth groups and civic clubs in South Maui that are interested in hosting their own virtual vision workshops with their members may contact county planners at wearesouthmaui@mauicounty.gov to find out how to get access to a “workshop in a box.”

“Building a vision for South Maui’s future is key to making sure that all the goals, policies and actions in the community plan take us in the right direction,” said Planning Director Michele McLean.

“We are looking forward to these conversations with the community.”
