3/16/17 #kihei In the past few County Council Budget and Finance Committee meetings, there has been discussion (BF-129) about Concessions and Sponsorships in County Parks & Recreation Facilities. So this is not a specific South Maui concern, but county-wide, but of course the outcome affects all of our parks. As the intent is to establish policy, your opinion matters.
A random example: this morning the Maui News front page addressed the long-awaited gym to be constructed in our community park, which the P & R Director now estimates at $20M. If an international corporation offers to donate a sizable amount toward this cost, if the facility is named for their business, are you in favor? Does it depend on the type of business? Is that too much a mainland concept, not Maui style? How about granting concessions at the parks to generate funding?
