UPDATE 4/21/16  With mahalo to the Planning Department, we can now state the Planning Commission has decided to accept the invitation for a site visit at Makena ATC’s project site on Wednesday morning, May 18 at 9:00 AM. This is the morning after our public community meeting on 5/17 concerning overall S Maui building projects in contrast to lack of infrastructure, so this serendipitous meeting juxtaposition seems apropos.

UPDATE 4/20/16  No, we do not know if a site visit is planned, as while we participated in the 4/12 meeting, we could not remain for this later item. This was one of the very PC meetings NOT recorded by Akaku, so we are attempting to get the answer from the Commission. As soon as we do, we will alert the Community on this very site

4/6/16  The last hearing at this County Planning Commission on this proposed project back In January,  SEE http://gokihei.org/environment/maui-island-residents-tell-commissioners-to-say-no-to-atc-makena        brought forth a huge crowd, with the vast majority testifying against the project. As the meeting’s stated intent was simply to take comments, and take no vote on any decision, it was a “to be determined” conclusion.IMG_2818IMG_2814IMG_2824

Now the next meeting on Tuesday (4/12/16) indicates on the agenda that one decision to be made in the process, will the Commissioners want to do a site visit, & if so when?. Our expectation is the volunteer Commissions, joined by two new ones, and under direction of a new Chair, will respond affirmatively to the invitation and set up a time and date to do so. If correct, once announced we will pass on the word to the community, and expect a strong segment of the concerned public will want to participate. Stay Tuned!

    This project is and will be a destruction from a cultural prospective, and environmental issues, This will block 4.8 miles of shoreline view, it will add to pollution which be sent into the ejection wells that are already leaking into our ocean and a lawsuit in progress by the federal government, for violating the clean air and water act, we need a full EIS on this project as well as a cultural advisory committee input on historical sites, that will be destroyed and will not be excess by Native Hawaiian and cultural practitioners.

  2. Mahalo for your comment, Richard. KCA had testified our concerns with this proposed project at the Commission meeting earlier this year, and we are trying to keep track, since no decision was made by the Commissioners at that meeting. We did attend the 4/12/16 meeting, but were unable to remain later in day when a decision was to be made about this proposed site visit. As Akaku did not record this meeting, we are trying to learn of the decision from the Department, so we can inform the Community, but do to vacations and travel of guys there, we have not learned so far. Rest assured as soon as we learn the outcome, the information will be right here on this site. Stay tuned.
