Led by KCA President Jon Miller, Goode was questioned about flooding, the status of the North-South Collector Road, bike paths, monkeypod tree preservation and street safety. “We seem to be building culverts and sending water straight into the ocean,” Miller told Goode. “What we have to do is try to work with what we have,” Goode responded. He said that erosion is happening and it is being accelerated by manmade activities. “We can’t ask everyone to move out of Kihei,” Goode told the audience. “That is impractical. We are dealing with a built environment.” See More at The Maui Weekly   Kihei Community Association President Jon Miller asks Maui County Department of Public Works Director David Goode if anything can be done about flooding in South Kihei. “We seem to be building culverts and sending water straight into the ocean,” he told Goode.
