Capitol Improvement Project grants from the State
Our newly elected South Maui rep is ready to help, but contact THIS WEEK, as the State ledge moves quickly:
Representative Tina Wildberger
House District 11 – South Maui
Kihei – Wailea – Makena
I’d like to address thie email to Rep. Tina Wildberger (S. Maui). In regards to projects for the Kihei area ,I’d like to bring to your attention an issue I have thought about for at least three years. The issue is the SPEEDING / RECKLESS driving on Lipoa St. in Kihei. We all know it as a short cut to the Highway or S. Kihei rd. Myself and my neighbors know it as an accident waiting to happen ,a very serious accident if you consider whats there . An elementary school , Community ctr / pool / DMV / Foreign student condominium / a good half mile of commercial business’s / a 57 + residential neighborhood a supermarket and a catholic church. The current speed limit is 20 mph . The only sign for half mile ,warns of school. Sometimes there’s a crossing guard for the children ,sometimes there’s not. Everybody speeds ,no exceptions. Maui PD monitors on occasion , but cannot do this daily. All I’m asking , is for 2-3 pedestrian crossings w/lights ,a permanent crossing guard for the school kids . a few more speed limit signs. After a while folks will get the hint ,use another route or get up earlier and slow down. This is a fight worth fighting for . Living in the area , I think you’ll agree. Thanks for listening. and Happy New Year. Sincerly , Tom Fitzthum
Thomas, while there is some chance Tina might see your comment here on our website, it seemingly would have more assurance if you sent it directly to her at her email address which we furnished in this post. That said as a State Legislator, we am not sure what she could do about activity of a County road, except to ask county officials to address the matter, but you can ask her
