The South Maui Community Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) decided at its September 20 meeting to not meet again until the Planning Department reinstates the ability for residents to participate in the meetings and to testify at them remotely. The Planning Department abruptly withdrew the remote participation ability starting at the September 13 meeting.
The CPAC began its work on the new South Maui Community Plan one year ago. Once completed, the plan will be handed off for review to the Maui Planning Commission. Normally the committee meets every Wednesday at 5:30pm at different locations in Kihei.
CPAC member Mike Moran says: “We have not been receiving adequate support from the Planning Department for our volunteer work. We have also been missing the participation of Corporate Counsel at all but a couple of the 40+ meetings, although legal support is provided to almost all other commissions and committees in the County. We expect the Planning Department to find a way for our community to participate in the last, important meetings of the CPAC. That includes those prevented from attending physically for medical reasons.”
