8/21/15 : Seeing presentation at its proposed location offered good perspective to committee members who participated on Thursday

Our Design Review Committee (DRC) was sitting in the middle of a garden Thursday morning listening to owner Mike Farina and his architect August Percha present their concepts on developing South Maui Gardens on Auhana in a mixed use project. They were accompanied by the rest of their team.

The committee retired to the KCA office to discuss and complete our Smart Growth Scorecard, https://www.gokihei.org/wp-content/uploads/KIHEI-SCORECARD-2014-05-15.pdf to evaluate this preliminary look at this very interesting and unusual project. The completed scorecard should be delivered to the two gentlemen next week, when the are welcome to continue discussion with KCA, likely offering more specifics so the scorecard can address numerous topics which were not rated. .
