     Last evening, this month’s Oneloa Coalition (OC) meeting was relocated from the usual site of the Pacific Whale Foundation’s (PWF) classroom to the new MAKAI THEATER AT MAUI OCEAN CENTER just up the stairs and across the parking lot. This was due to a scheduling conflict.

But the change did not alter the continuing responsibility of the representatives of the various groups ensuring the preservation, restoration, and management of the State park in Makena. Meeting chair Albert Perez oversaw the subcommittee’s report on Paniaka Pond and the continuing topics regarding the proposed restrooms, the master and management plans.

After introduction and meeting minutes, Jim Mothersbaugh was back again, this time via Skype, to offer a presentation, this one on compost toilets for multiple areas of the State Park.

Following this slide presentation, several questions and comments were offered to Jim before he was excused, and the discussion moved on to the proposed Master & Management planning for the park. This brought forth proposals concerning two additional committees for objectives, planning, and fundraising.

The next meeting is set for November 15 at 6:30 PM at the usual PWF classroom.
