Last evening (9/19/12) Coordinator Teena Rasmusson of the Mayor’s Office of Economic development and staff offered a presentation to the S. Maui Community concerning a proposal to explore possibility or a “Fourth Friday” community party in Kihei, in place of the failed effort at Pai’a of the Fourth Friday of each month, but seemingly having success in Wailuku with their “First Friday’s.” Commencing at 5:00 PM at the Kihei Charter School, a crowd of about 50 listened and questioned on a variety of topics, such as when it might start?   December 28. Where may it be located?   Some business pushed for the area around the Charter School, where the meeting took place, but nothing set.Potential effects?  – Closing a portion of S Kihei Road for 3 hours on designated Friday evenings.

As we arrived late to the meeting, we were unable to capture all the details, but when Tena asked if there was anyone in room who was not complely in favor of this, we said KCA could not commit at this point, as we had no specifics, & our BOD had not even discussed it. The meeting concluded with a decision to form a committee to begin formulating plans
