It was reported that when the Kihei Community Association( KCA) was established over a half century ago, the two major community concerns were water and roads, and most agree those concerns have not changed. What is changing is our water and our growth. It was just reported April had record lack of rainfall on Maui, while South Maui keeps growing.

At this month’s meeting, KCA has a wealth of knowledge concerning our regional water situation. We are most fortunate to have State Commissioner of Water Resource Management, Jonathan Starr, permaculturalist and past Maui County Water Supply Board  Chair Michael Howden, as well as environmental scientist Robin Knox, who will give an update of the mass undertaking she has helped develop, South West Maui Watershed Group findings. Everyone is welcome at the Kihei Charter Middle School 41 E. Lipoa (behind the car wash) on third Tuesday at 6:30 pm sharp on May 21.

There will also be the the monthly “sense  of place” segment, and a brief introduction to Maui Outdoor Circle by president Elaine Malina.

If you are not yet a member, please give it consideration, as the larger our membership, the stronger our voice.

The June 18 meeting with focus of the 2013 state legislation session  which just commenced.
