In June, 2010, the State Department of Health, Healthy Hawaii Initiative awarded a grant to Chris Hart & Partners and Berkeley, California-based Alta Planning & Design to prepare an active transportation plan for central Maui.  After nearly two years of work, the consultant team and 16-member steering committee will release the plan entitled “Central Maui Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan for 2030” to the public at a meeting to be held from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 25 in the Cameron Center auditorium.  The event is sponsored by Hui No Ke Ola Pono and NPAC.  Light pu-pu will be served.

Early on the consultant team and steering committee concluded that central Maui could become a world-class pedestrian and bicyclist community with a commitment to this common vision and renewed investment in supporting infrastructure.  The steering committee set forth the following vision:

The people who live, work and play in central Maui desire a community in which bicycling and walking for health, transportation or enjoyment can be done safely and without physical barriers.  Further, we desire a future where bicycling, walking and other non-motorized activities are accommodated in a safe, well-maintained, and easily accessible manner for the following reasons:

  • -Promoting a healthier lifestyle
  • -Creating more livable communities, and
  • -Facilitating greater social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Please join us, meet the steering committee, and learn about the plan, the priorities identified by the steering committee and community, and perhaps volunteer to help move some of the projects forward!

Mahalo!
