On Tuesday, 8/12/14 at 9:00 AM,  Krausz Companies goes before the County Planning Commission to request a Kihei Makena Community Plan Amendment, a special management area (SMA) permit and a change in County zoning for this central Kihei project.

KCA has had numerous meetings with Jay Krigsman and David Pyle of Krausz Companies this decade, as a committee, board of directors and with the general membership. The proposed project, along both sides of Pi’ikea, mauka of Liloa Dr., has passed though a series of modifications in planning and design for a variety of reasons by this developer, who owns the commercial plaza just makai, anchored by Safeway supermarket. In addition to the two officers, on island agent Munekiyo and Hiraga’s Colleen Suyama participated.

 Going back to KCA past president George Rixey’s regime for an initial meeting with KCA,and continuing to Mike Moran’s term this year, the two gentlemen from Krausz have been open and informative in all discussions and presentations and offer an effort to accommodate many of your Association’s concerns.

For some history of these meetings, go to our search feature on this site’s home page (scroll down) & insert Krausz or Downtown Kihei for the pertinent reports.

It is our intent to participate in this Planning Commission meeting to offer which elements the Planning Commission should condition before approving these land use changes.

  1. I live in Piilani Villages and so far, this development seems like a good idea to me! Especially if connected by walking path.

    We hope KCA actively supports this project. It would be wonderful to have a compact “village center” in Kihei and especially to again have a local movie theatre.

  3. Mahalo for your input, as members like you are what direct your Association’s actions. In the past decade KCA has offered comments and suggestions to this team to tweak segments, such as bicycle connectivity to the County bike path on the mauka edge of the project and incorporating the wetlands at the makai edge into their architectural designs. Meanwhile we urge both county and state agencies to offer infrastructure improvements and progress to keep up with ALL the proposed developments in the South Maui area, and not merely look at the effect of a single project.
