Three neighborhood planning workshops set for June

Lahaina Town North, Lahaina Town South and historic business districts to be included 

The County of Maui Office of Recovery and Department of Planning will hold three neighborhood planning  workshops in June for residents to share their thoughts on topics specific to the areas with county staff. 

The workshops are scheduled for June 1, 15 and 29, 2024, from 3 to 5:30 p.m. at Lahainaluna High School  cafeteria, 980 Lahainaluna Road, Lahaina. 

The workshops are as follows: 

  • Lahaina Town North Neighborhood Planning Workshop on Saturday, June 1. This workshop is for  residents in the area north of Lahainaluna Road, including Keawe Camp and Māla. 
  • Lahaina Town South Neighborhood Planning Workshop on Saturday, June 15. This workshop is for  residents in the area south of Lahainaluna Road, including Shark Pit and Puamana. 
  • Historic and Business Districts Planning Workshop on Saturday, June 29. This workshop will address  the historic and business districts and is an opportunity for members of the Lahaina community to  share their thoughts on the future of this area. 

Doors open at 2:30 p.m., and the workshops will begin at 3 p.m. Snacks and children’s activities will be  provided. 

There will be language interpreters on site (ASL, Hawaiian, Ilocano, Spanish, Tagalog, Tongan). Due to  limited parking, carpooling is strongly recommended. Parking close to the venue will be reserved for those  requiring mobility assistance. 

The workshops will help ensure that residents are aware of options for their neighborhood and that the  County is aware of community preferences so they can be included in the long-term recovery plan.  

These neighborhood workshops will NOT include information for shoreline owners who are wishing to  rebuild. The Planning Department will release information about the process for shoreline property owners  in mid-June and will offer the opportunity for one-on-one consultations as owners navigate the process. 

The Office of Recovery prioritizes community engagement for the long-term recovery plan for Lahaina. The  purpose of community engagement, such as these workshops, is to collaborate with residents on their  vision for recovery, which will lead to a long-term recovery plan of projects to address damages from the  August 2023 fire. The recovery plan will include projects and funding, and will guide recovery in a  sustainable and resilient manner. 

Previous planning workshops were held for the Kelawea Mauka and Wahikuli neighborhoods. An online neighborhood planning workshop is also being developed. Please visit for updates.
