Maui County's zoning code was adopted before man walked on the moon!  The County is thus currently in the process of updating the code to address 21st century challenges and opportunities while aligning zoning with the priorities and goals of the County's General Plan. Some of these challenges and opportunities include:

      -- Place-making and fostering healthy communities

      -- Addressing climate change and sea level rise

      -- Providing affordable housing

The Department of Planning hired a consultant, Orion Planning + Design, to conduct an audit of Maui County Code's Title 19 Zoning.  This presentation will go over the audit timeline; who was involved and how input was garnered; the key findings and recommendations of the audit; and an update on what's next
