5/1/17 #kihei    Wrapping up year five, the Alliance of Maui Community Associations (Alliance) only had eight people present for its May 1 meeting, but Kihei led the way with three of the eight. The meeting kicked off with guest Pam Eaton from the County Planning Department to educate on an upcoming series of events including a stakeholders (which includes KCA) meeting concerning an audit of Maui County Zoning Provisions (Title 19)The Department of Planning has contracted with Orion Planning and Design to conduct an audit.

From there the group had a discussion comparing and contrasting our Current Community Associations with other structures such as the Neighborhood Boards in Oahu, District Advisory Boards reflecting the Community plan districts or some combination of them, investigating if there was a better form of organization for our communities. No real conclusion was reached.

Going into year six, future meetings could include interviewing potential mayoral candidates (2018) and possible future charter amendments (2020).

The next meeting is slated for May 22 at 6:00 PM at the Kaunoa Senior Services Center in Spreckelsville.
