Maui County issues Stop Work order for Napili house construction

Napili Beach House, LLC, developer of a controversial single-family residence under construction in Napili, has received a Stop Work Order from Maui County’s Department of Public Works Development Services Administration. The order, prepared in consultation with the Planning Department, requires all work to cease as of 4 p.m., yesterday, Dec. 15. 2021.

Building and zoning inspectors examined the project site and determined the work deviates from area zoning requirements and maximum building square footage required to qualify for a Special Management Area Permit exemption in the project location. 

According to Maui County Planning Director, Michele McLean, an area between the first and second stories, and a roof over a covered elevator machine room, together constitute two additional stories. Therefore, the building exceeds the Napili Civic Improvement District building height limitation of two stories in effect when permits were approved. In addition, the building likely exceeds the 7,500 square-foot limitation required for an SMA permit exemption for a single-family residence in the area.

The Stop Work order can be lifted after the Planning Department and DSA building inspectors approve specific actions to be taken by the owner to correct the violations. The owner may also appeal by requesting a public hearing by the Maui County Board of Variances and Appeals.
