New round of public meetings announced on amendments to Maui SMA and Shoreline Rules

Continuing its multi-year effort to amend the Maui Planning Commission’s Special Management Area and Shoreline Rules, the Maui County Planning Department has scheduled public meetings to discuss the latest versions before presenting them to the Maui Planning Commission for adoption.

The proposed amendments have undergone numerous revisions over the past several years, based on feedback from the community, various government agencies, stakeholder groups and the Commission. The latest versions have only minor changes from the last round posted in March.

The amendments have two primary objectives:

  • To identify certain activities that will no longer require SMA or Shoreline review because they will have no impact to the coastal zone or shoreline environment
  • To incorporate sea-level rise and coastal erosion projections into the regulation of shoreline development to protect property, the shoreline environment, and public health and safety

The meetings are scheduled as follows:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 18, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., via videoconference (BlueJeans) at https://bluejeans.com/593242455, or by calling 1-408-915-6290, 1-408-740-7256 or 1-312-216-0325 and entering meeting ID 593 242 455
  • Also on Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., via videoconference (BlueJeans) at https://bluejeans.com/344711566, or by calling 1-408-915-6290, 1-408-740-7256 or 1-312-216-0325 and entering meeting ID 344 711 566
  • Tuesday, Oct. 25, workshop with the Maui Planning Commission; the meeting begins at 9 a.m. The meeting agenda will be posted at https://www.mauicounty.gov/191/Maui-Planning-Commission at least six days prior and will provide an in-person location and videoconference link.
  • Tuesday, Nov. 22, public hearing and potential adoption by the Maui Planning Commission; the meeting begins at 9 a.m. The meeting agenda will be posted at https://www.mauicounty.gov/191/Maui-Planning-Commission at least six days prior and will provide an in-person location and videoconference link.

The proposed rule amendments and some Frequently Asked Questions can be found on the Planning Department’s website at mauicounty.gov/Planning under “Hot Topics.” Additional public outreach and meetings may be scheduled upon request.
