KCA was on the scene at 6:00 PM this evening at the Kaunoa Senior Service Center to learn about and discuss â€long range planningâ€ at the month’s meeting of the Alliance of Maui Community Associations. Once again KCA had the biggest presence, but the revived Maalaea Association came on strong, while Kula and Haiku were also represented.
Literally long range was Jane Lafleur using technology to address the group all the way from Maine. This night owl offered oral accompaniment for a power point visual presentation that she had transmitted previously so it could be viewed by the Alliance members.
According to Empowering Communities to Shape their Futures, JB Lafleur Consultants provides community development, planning, citizen engagement and civic leadership training and educational programs. Ms. LaFleurâ€™s work includes community facilitation, town planning, walkability audits and place-making training and other community assessments, as well as coaching Community Heart & Soul communities through a two year community development process.
With South Maui’s community representation strong again at the meeting, we were encouraged to hear the perspective of a bottom up community planning process and how this might be another (better?) way provide input to the next round of the Kihei-Makena Community Plan.
Next month’s meeting is set for TUESDAY 3/27/18.
