ALLIANCE OF MAUI COMMUNITY ASSOCIATIONS July 2016 meeting
This evening’s (7/17/16) meeting at Kaunoa of the Alliance members had a duel mission of informing some of the very scare data about future plans of A & B of the lands soon to be empty of a sugar plantation. Participation by nine guys representing seven Island Community Associations, including three KCA’s, began with a oral presentation from Pukalani President Donna Clayton. This concerned a meeting on July 7, organized by the County Administration including Mayor Arakawa and his EA Teena Rasmussen, representatives of H C & S/ A & B and a group of small farmers and trail advocates addressing the future use of the 36,000 acres.
She related that while definitive information was sparse, there was mention of â€œfield trailsâ€ for grazing cattle and fuel crops, but emphasis was no plan will be forthcoming until water issues are settled.
The remainder of the extended meeting ( we had to leave after 2.5 hours when meeting was wrapping up) was devoted to upcoming elections for state & County Council offices.
