WAILUKU – The county Department of Parks and Recreation last week announced a series of four community meetings that will be held later this month to discuss plans for county skateparks in Upcountry Maui and on Molokai and Lanai.

Parks staff and skatepark design consultant California Skateparks will be on-hand at the meetings to receive community input on the conceptual designs for proposed skateparks at three sites.

Two meetings will be held in Pukalani regarding the Upcountry park; one meeting each on Molokai and Lanai will also be held.
