Originally organized more than a decade ago, the group has decided to become active again this month, upon the first meeting on Thursday 4/24/14. Composed of Makena Homeowners Association, Maui Meadows Neighborhood Association, Wailea Community Association and your Association, with possible additional organizations as it proceeds, the SMCCA is looking to use the power on unification to advance the cause of making South a better place to live.
Some of the potential issues are expected to be transportation (motor vehicle, bicycling, pedestrian and mass); drainage; electrical power and distribution; development with regard to required infrastructure and the upcoming renewal of the Kihei Makena Community Plan. There is expected to also examination of numerous more narrow topics concerning the quality of life for our residents.
KCA by laws make it clear at the time of inception over fifty years ago, that the Kihei District included Maalaea, Kihei, Wailea and Makena. We also note the the Kihei-Makena Community Plan district includes all of this, and also extends out through Puunene as far as the Mehameha Loop . Thus an alliance of organizations spread through the area fits with the original plan, in spite of the huge growth and development since the beginning. Watch for future updates as the Coalition progresses. Note: KCA Past President George Rixey directed KCA during inception of SMCCA, and is stiil active in KCA and our community as recently as our April general membership meeting.
