Environment topic of free Nov. 21 event

Even though the event is not in South Maui & seems directed to Central Maui, the topic is a favorite of KCA, and it is what we have been championing for over a decade. How can we make our area a walkable/bikeable community?

A free workshop about improving Maui’s environment for pedestrians, bicycles and residents of all ages, titled “You Can Help Make a Better Maui,” will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Nov. 21 in the Mayor’s Conference Room in the Kalana O Maui building in Wailuku.

The event is hosted by the Maui County Nutrition & Physical Activity Coalition, AARP Hawai’i and Pioneering Healthier Communities.

Charlene Shibuya, a coalition board member, senior planner at Munekiyo & Hiraga and retired state Department of Transportation assistant district engineer/construction engineer, will present “What are Complete Streets and Why Are They Important?”

Erin Wade, Maui County Planning Department small-town planner, will discuss priorities and focus areas for Wailuku improvements.

The county Department of Parks and Recreation has been invited to talk about the improvements to Wells Park.

Registration is required. To do so, go to aarp.cvent.com/bettermaui1 or call Sandra McGuinness at 264-7895. Lunch will be served.
