Maui Now : Online Vision Workshop Offered for West Maui
The County of Maui Department of Planning invites the public to weigh in on proposed visions for the West Maui Community Plan through an online workshop open this month.
The Online Vision Workshop is available at www.wearemaui.org and runs from Friday, Jan. 11, to Jan. 21.
Participants will be able to review, comment on and rank vision options that will affect the West Maui community for the next two decades. The department’s Long Range Division staff planners prepared the draft vision options using feedback from more than 130 residents, who offered their insights, hopes and dreams for the area, during in-person and online workshops in December.
Staff planners will use the input received during this month’s online workshop to draft a single vision statement for the plan that will be used to guide community design workshops in February 2019.
“Creating a vision is an important step in the process to update the community plan,” said Pam Eaton, chief of the Long Range Division. “A vision describes what the community wants to achieve in 20 years, as well as reflects the community’s values and priorities for the future. It also serves as a guide to help identify goals, policies and actions in the community plan.”
