Planning Commission Mtg 9/22/20 Changes to Ordinance

Monday, September 14, 2020 10:59 AM | Jen Russo (Administrator)



A big mahalo to everyone that joined us for the first MVRA Zoom meeting last week Thursday. We have confirmation that the proposed changes to the B&B and Short Term Rental ordinances are on the Planning Commission agenda for September 22, 2020 at 9am.


Please send in testimony with your feelings on the proposed ordinance changes, and state that we do not think this is the right time for changing the ordinance. The changes should be deferred and more information should be gathered, like determining what Maui’s visitor industry looks like after COVID restrictions have been lifted. Right now with the current closures we don’t know what the future is going to be like when we reopen. We need time, and we don’t want to eliminate any economic opportunities that could be critical to our county.


We will be holding another zoom meeting this Thursday September 17th, at 11am HST to discuss further, please register at https://mvra.net/event-3979381
