PWC’s Kenolio Apartments Construction in N Kihei Is Well Underway at Kenolio and Kaonoulu

What about the long term safe route to schools? UPDATE 12/28/18  NEW ACTIVITY THIS MORNING AT THE CONSTRUCTION, AS THIS HUGE TRAILER WAS DELIVERED. Will it replace the old Betsill Bros structure?  Stay tuned     12/17/18 #kiheiWe waited over a decade for the NSCR to continue southbound from Kaonoulu, but were told by County government that the open land with a Betsill Bros Construction trailer makai of the highway had an imposed condition to build the road when the land was developed, so the County would not spend taxpayer money. However the land was ultimately sold to Pacific West...

Is This the First Physical Action for PWC’s Kenolio Apartments Construction in North Kihei?

UPDATE: 12/4/2018  We see P B Sullivan bringing in their heavy equipment to start  the grading and grubbing of this land, so the three story apartments for affordable rentals can be constructed here.                                        With so much development in this small area, at times it is difficult to ensure if a new project is commencing 11/30/18 NOW we see more evidence and confirmation that indeed this project is indeed commencing.                      ...

(OTI) and audio input from the developer Pacific West Companies’ (PWC) Doug Gibson and Don Slattery via conference call for the home base in Eagle, ID, the Design Review Committee (DRC) performed a Smart Growth Scorecard of the Kenolio Apartment Project. With a very tentative projection of breaking ground in two to three years, the projected affordable three story rental residential complex would be located at the SW corner of Kaonoulu Rd and the Pi’ilani Highway.

Kenolio Apartments land clearing this week.

UPDATE    8/19/14   KCA has submitted the EA comments to both CHP and PWC now. In addition the last remnant of the “junkyard” appearance which has lingered for years on this site, the graffiti marred  shipping container has been removed. *************************************************************************************************************************************************** 8/16/14   While your Association is preparing comments this month on the Environmental Assessment (EA)  for the  “ Kenolio Apartments” at the  SW corner of Kaonoulu St. & Pi’ilani  Hwy, we note some apparent land clearing taking place past few days. We made note a while back that the new land owners Pacific  West Communities (PWC) of Idaho have...

YES IT WAS MISINFORMATION ON THE PATH

12/31/18    So you can call it a: misunderstanding, misinterpretation, misconstruction, misreading, misapprehension, misconception,  or a screw up, but there is no public access at the site. The five foot wide strip between the fences does exist, but it is not for the public use! So until the site is somewhat open, and the entrance roadway is completed (2020?) kids must seek another route to schools. We published what we were advised, and this is what we were advised today. Today a sign blocks the path which is contrary to information we were given and shared with the community earlier this month . We will...

TRUE Affordable housing starting construction in Kihei THIS year

Rent for a new 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit for about $400 per month?  Now that’s affordable. UPDATE 6/15/18 We jumped the gun on Kenolio Apartments, as the street markings at the intersection (see below) which show GBI (Goodfellow Bros. Inc.) do not verify they are set do do any physical work yet, as they advise while they have bid on the project, it has not yet been awarded. 6/7/18 #kihei One thing everyone seems to agree upon in our area is we need housing. More so we need really affordable housing, and the greatest immediate need is affordable...

TWO KIHEI DEVELOPMENTS “DECIDED” AT PLANNING COMMISSION ON TUESDAY 2/9/16

While they were placed on opposite ends of the Commission’s agenda, and in some ways they are polar opposite developments, the opening 100% “affordable” all rental residential Kenolio Apartments at the SE corner of Kenolio and Kaonoulu and the International chain Walgreens Drugs at the SW corner of SKR and Nohukai were both a concern to our community, warranting KCA testimony. Some may say our testimony on them were polar opposites, but we see some similarities in both, and lots of differences, of course. Due to the nature of our all volunteer, unfunded non profit, we are unable to dedicate a full day to the meeting in Wailuku, but with the help of several Directors, we were able to address both developments. The Commission took the unusual step of no lunch, so both were completed by early afternoon Pacific West Communities (PWC) request for an SMA permit for the Kenolio Apartments was easily granted by unanimous vote with lots of kudos. KCA of course completely supports the drastic need for reasonably priced residential units, but our concerns remain adhering to the legal requirements clearly stated in the Kihei-Makena Community Plan (KMCP), particularity related to infrastructure and our environment. The often mentioned, but seemingly ignored segment of KMCP that states,” Upon adoption of this plan, it shall be required that adequate facilities and infrastructure will be built concurrent with future...

Tuesday Aug. 19th General Membership Meeting Looks at Kaonoulu

This Tuesday’s meeting will focus of the Ka’ono’ulu area of No Kihei. What do you think of at the name Ka’ono’ulu? The Ka’ono’ulu Estates? although none of these homes are located on Kaonoulu Street. In fact, no individual houses are on it, only the apartments across from the Maui Lu Resort, & even their address is not Ka’ono’ulu St. How about that street itself with the 20 MPH speed limit, but engineered to induce driving double that as a very wide and wide open street with not a traffic calming device anywhere. Certainly wide enough for a parallel bike...
