DLNR- DOFAW PUBLIC HEARING ON HABITAT CONSERVATION PLAN ON MAJOR KIHEI PROJECT

Most guys still refer to it as Wailea 670, the original name before apparently the Wailea Association said it is not part of Wailea, so you can’t use that name. Now it is Honua’ula, but regardless of the name, it remains a controversial project for a number of reasons, including preserving the environment, including effect on endangered species at the 670 acre site. So the agency came to Maui, (but not South Maui) to receive testimony last evening (7/27/16) in Wailuku at the Cameron Center, where about 20 some concerned testifiers showed up. Those caring who missed the opportunity...

Committee System

About The Committee System Due to the complexity of its work, KCA divides its tasks among several committees. Each committee has its own meetings and sets its own goals and objectives. This creates considerable variation among the committees and allows KCA to be most effective in approaching many of the issues that we face as a community. As more volunteers join KCA we are able to create more committees and/or subcommittees to specifically address the vast number of issues confronting us including some that may be timely or seasonal. The main focus of the committees is to find solutions, not just point out problems. All committees act in an advisory capacity to the board of directors on all matters pertaining to public, community, government and media relations; fundraising; website management; and responding to inquiries from the public, the community, government officials and the media. You can learn more about our committees and see in detail what they have been working on by using the pull down menu above or read about their programs in the community section by clicking on tags or searching the archives.

Kihei Community Assoc. Develops New Structure for a New Year

Newly elected Kihei Community Association Board of Directors President Jon Miller shares his vision for Kihei at the KCA meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 15. Kihei Community Association Vice President and Services Committee Member Mike Moran distributes cloth grocery bags to be used as alternatives to plastic bags. Maui Weekly | Thursday, August 28, 2008 | Scott Broadbent KCA reorganized to plan and implement projects, improve the environment and inform citizens to develop a firm vision of the future and make sure “Kihei’s voice is heard.” Concerned that their six committees were becoming unwieldy, the Board of Directors of the Kihei Community Association (KCA) has established three “Super Committees” to deal with issues confronting the community in the coming year. With the addition of six new members and the election of new officers, the board hopes to streamline procedures to plan and implement projects, provide important feedback to county and state government on community needs, improve our environment and inform citizens about issues affecting South Maui. Members of the Services, Public Relations and Design Review Committees presented their priorities for the coming year at the KCA meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 15. The presentations were followed by separate roundtable sessions during which attendees were invited to ask questions and share their concerns and issues. The new slate of officers was announced: Jon Miller will serve as president; Mike Moran and Bob...

Update on Ocean Water Quality Study

Microbial indicators of marine recreational water quality in Maui, Hawai`i: Assessing waterbody impairment in relation to known pollution sources Neil Rhoads and Mailea Miller-Pierce, PhD. May 28, 2016 #kihei #maui #ocean #waterquality We are the authors of a scientific paper examining the negative effects of On Site Disposal Systems (OSDS) – cesspools and septic tanks – on marine recreational waters around Maui, specifically, microbial contamination due to human waste. Our paper is currently in preparation for publication and we anticipate it will be accepted for publication in the near future. Our preliminary, summarized results are as follows: Our study uses water quality data collected and analyzed by the HIDOH, Clean Water Branch. There were 79 collection sites around Maui which were sampled from 1989 to present. Overall, there were more than 16,000 samples analyzed. Of the 79 collection sites, 30 had sufficient sampling to permit analysis of trends over time. Fecal Indicator Bacteria (FIB) concentrations at 27 out of the 30 sites were significantly higher in the years 2004-2016 compared to 1989-1998. Sites with the largest increases in FIB (enterococci concentrations) were: Olowalu (943%), Kanaha Beach (443%), Launiupoko (352%), and Hanaka`o`o (315%). Launiupoko is of particular interest because during the study period the adjoining land transitioned from sugar cane production to residential estates employing OSDS. As of 2010, there were 246 OSDSs upslope near Launiupoko, discharging 392,900 gal/day. While...
