The Planning Department Long Range Division has announced the beginning of South Maui's Community Plan Update. The online hub is located at https://southmaui.wearemaui.org/
It's going to be critical to participate. We want the South Maui Community Plan to be better than ever, and balance goals of the community plus continue to have the benefits of their vacation rental ohana as well. Right now they have scheduled 4 Vision Workshops to be held via zoom.
This is what the press release said:
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 videoconferencing platform on the following dates and times:
Thursday, January 21, 5:30 – 7 p.m.

Clicking on the links above 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. “I encourage everyone in South Maui to sign up for these workshops. Talk with your neighbors about what makes South Maui great and how we can plan for future generations.”
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 here: https://southmaui.wearemaui.org/get-involved-vision-survey/. The online workshop will be available through February 7.
Additionally, organizations like neighborhood associations, youth groups, and civic clubs in South Maui who are interested in hosting their own virtual vision workshops with their members may contact County planners at email@example.com 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.”
