Community Plan Workshops
County of Maui Planning Department News Release
The Molokai Community Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) will be holding meetings on June 3 and June 4 to discuss the ongoing update of the island’s Community Plan. The June 3 meeting will focus on Chapter 5, Economic Development, and the June 4 meeting will cover Chapter 6, Land Use and Housing and Chapter 7, Community Design.
Both meetings will be held at the Lanikeha Community Center. The June 3 Economic Development Workshop begins at 3:30 p.m. and the June 4 Land Use, Housing and Community Design Workshop starts at 9:30 a.m.
The meeting will begin with presentations and discussion on the specific topics to provide background information to the CPAC and the public. The CPAC will also review the corresponding draft chapters and provide specific recommendations.
One of the speakers at the June 3 meeting will be John Knox, an economic consultant on the Community Plan Update. He will provide an overview of the island’s economy and discuss potential scenarios as a starting point for the CPAC when reviewing recommendations. These scenarios will be especially helpful at the June 4 meeting when discussing land use, house, and community design. One of the key questions to be discussed is how and where growth over the next 20 years should be accommodated.
The Draft Molokai Community Plan is available on the County of Maui Planning Department webpage at mauicounty.gov/index.aspx?NID=1684. For more information on the meetings, please call the Planning Dept. at 808-270-7214.
