COMMITTEE DECISION ON New candidate for Prosecutor

UPDATE 3/15/19 Unanimous approval for confirmation today  and onto full Council possibly next Friday.  But that still leaves the DPW and Housing waiting for the mayor’s offering who is next. UPDATE  3/12/19.  While many expected a decision by the Council’s GET Committee this morning on nominee Don Guzman, because the item was set last on the agenda, and the committee spent the morning in executive session to NOT decide on two litigation matters, the matter was delayed until Friday (3/15) at 9 AM. UPDATE 3/1/19  Word out this morning that three term Councilmember Don Guzman is to be the...

The Alliance examines three distinct but related issues of planning, visitor industry and effects of them on the Hana Highway

2/26/19. #kihei #visitors #tourism Now, in their eighth calendar year, since its inception in 2012, the Alliance of Maui Community Associations, once again filled the room at the Kaunoa Senior center last evening with a diverse group with four Kihei Community Association directors and numerous others representing the following areas: Hana, Kaupo, Kihei, Kula, Maalaea, Waihe’e, Waikapu, and Wailuku.

The downside to smoother roads in central Kihei are the closures and detours, not always well planned

UPDATE 2/25/19  This morning the area along SKR  near Kaonoulu, where construction of the time- share project at the site of the old Maui Lu Resort squeezes width of Kaonoulu, SKR is reduced to a single lane of alternating traffic to repave that road. Then one block south, Kulanihakoi is closed for construction. So the result is what one might expect of doing a lot of  traffic affecting work in the same area at that same time. Traffic jams.                                        ...
