Maui County Planning Update - Winter 2022
Community Plan Updates
By Jennifer Maydan, Maui County Planning Department Long Range Division
West Maui Community Plan
The Maui County Council adopted the updated West Maui Community Plan in December 17, 2021. This is the first community plan on Maui to be updated since the adoption of the Maui Island Plan in 2012. The West Maui Community Plan envisions a resilient, equitable and healthy community. It provides for new growth to meet the housing needs of the region and is the first plan to use the new mixed-use community plan designations to create walkable complete communities. The plan supports multi-modal transportation and mobility and protection of cultural, historic and natural resources. The process to update the 1996 West Maui Community Plan included research, broad community engagement supported by an interactive website and review by the West Maui Community Plan Advisory Committee, Maui Planning Commission and County Council. The plan, along with a web-based map, is available on the Planning Department’s website here.
