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...
