Be Part of the Plan
By Steve Chaikin, Chair, Molokai CPAC
Over the next six months, the Molokai Community Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) will be meeting to recommend revisions to update the Molokai Community Plan. The Plan will then be reviewed by the Molokai Planning Commission and approved by the County Council. When the process is complete, this plan will provide direction for future growth of our island and identify key actions for county agencies to implement over the next twenty years. The Maui County Planning Department has a new division specifically tasked with implementing community plans.
All of our meetings are open to the public. You can get more information about the Molokai Community Plan Update Process at the Maui County Planning Department’s website, co.maui.hi.us. If you would like to receive emails of our agendas for upcoming meetings, just email the planning department at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know to put you on the Molokai CPAC email list. Our agendas will also be posted around town.
This opportunity doesn’t come along very often so we better make the most of it. If you have any innovative ideas to meet some of the challenges that we face as an island community, talk to one of the CPAC members. The members are John Sprinzel, Steve Chaikin, Edwin Mendija, Dathan Bicoy, Debra Kelly, April Augustiro, Kip Dunbar, Kau`i Manera, Greg Jenkins, Rob Stevenson, Lori Buchanan and Glenn Teves. You are also welcome to submit testimony as outlined on each of our agendas or attend our meetings. It will take all of our expertise working together to move us in the direction of becoming sustainable and self-reliant.
