This morning (4/10/14), as always, Director David Goode pleasantly agreed to address the concerns of our Planning Committee at the KCA office. Presented with that very familiar list of KCA priorities going back decades, including the proposed N-S Collector Rd, making Kihei a walkable-bike able community and overall sufficient infrastructure to match all the established, approved and projected development.

Some of the specifics included traffic-signal light timing & coordination on SKR between Lipoa and Pi’ikea; proposed wilderness park south of the new police station; Kihei to Upcountry Hwy (HDOT project) ; S Maui drainage master plan; widening of Pi’ilani Hwy south of Kilohana;HDOT project) a new N-S roadway mauka of the Pi’ilani hwy; Kulanihakoi bridge on SKR; Waipuilani bike path; and the South Maui traffic study.

As the County Council is in process of the FY 2015 county budget, the list of Capital Improvement projects for our area are a continuing huge concern for our community and Association.
