A Public Presentation draws about 60 on 217-unit condo in South Kihei on Thursday

 Kamaole Grand: 6:30 PM at St Theresa’s Church Hall on 2/9/17.

KCA Board nearly had a quorum along with several members.

UPDATE 2/9/16 The required public meeting for land owners within 500 ‘ of the project had about sixty guys in the room at St T’s Church for the power point presentation delivered by the CHP team, who probably composed about 15% of that total.

The public comments and questions mostly centered on additional traffic concerns, view-plains and who was expected to reside there.




JAN 31 2017 . We offer a mahalo to Chris Hart and Partners (CHP) for alerting us to this just announced meeting for the Kamaole Grand proposed project. This goes above and beyond the legal requirement to advise all property owners within 500′ of the project (which they are doing via US mail)

The public is invited to this discussion.

The KCA Design Review Committee did review the proposed project back on 1/19/2017 (see http://gokihei.org/environment/first-2017-design-review-committee-meeting-examines-kamaole-grand-condo-project-for-south-kihei) and it was reviewed by the County Urban Design Review Board prior to that (see http://gokihei.org/news/another-new-condominium-project-proposed-for-south-maui-kamaole-grand).

  1. The adjacent properties are 2 and 3 storeys.
    Why not consider limiting this massive development to 3 storeys to be in harmony with its neighbors ?

    Thanks for inviting comments.

  2. You are welcome, Ralph. We believe it is good to share all input.However we need to remember to insure the developers hear you, best to attend their meeting.

  3. I would like to thank the developers for taking the time for the meeting on February 9th.

    I did have two concerns regarding the meeting.

    1. Not knowing the rainfall volumes during heavy storms, I hope the reservoir area they presented was adequate. I would hate to see additional flooding on S. Kihei Rd during a significant storm.

    2. The other was the traffic study. As stated in the meeting it was conducted in April before 9:30 AM. This is already a OVERLY congested area after 9:30 AM when the businesses are open and people are accessing the beaches. April is also one of the slower times of the year for this study. I strongly implore the developers to limit S. Kihei road access to emergency or off hour access only.

  4. Mahalo for participating in the communication, Jeff. In KCA’s estimation the system is very poor, & probably requires legislative modification. Developers report and the County government always seems to agree that each developer’s accredited traffic analyst does the legally required analysis and decides it is fine. Further there seems to be nothing in the process to look at the overall situation. Putting blinders on to only examine a single project’s traffic impact offers distorted conclusions.
    We encourage those concerned to testify before the County Planning Commission meetings on the project, possible in the late spring.
