PSLU Committee to hear change in zoning for Kilohana Makai Workforce Housing Project
WAILUKU, Hawaii—On Wednesday at 9 a.m., the Planning and Sustainable Land Use Committee will meet via the BlueJeans online platform to discuss the change in zoning application for the Kilohana Makai Workforce Housing Project in Kihei, committee Chair Tamara Paltin announced today.
Paltin said she originally intended to hear the application at an evening meeting in Kihei, but meeting plans were revised in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I appreciate the community’s adaptability as the council continues to overcome the challenges presented by this pandemic,” Paltin said. “Based on the success of the county’s budget session and other meetings of the council, it seems that BlueJeans can maintain transparency and public participation throughout this process as well.”
In addition to receiving testimony by phone or video conference, the committee will accept written testimony, which may be submitted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information to how to submit oral testimony via BlueJeans will be posted on the committee meeting agenda tomorrow, along with the applicant’s project information.
The PSLU meeting will also be available to view online and on Akaku Channel 53. For more information, visit mauicounty.us/agendas/ or contact the office of Councilmember Paltin at (808) 270-5504.
