Business Park In Pulehunui

Deportment of Land and Natural Resources is purposing a 285 acre business park on the old sugar lands of Pulehunui.  Proposed usage would include industrial, commercial, government, and nonprofit.

The formerly leased land is now back in the states hands. The hope is to generate longterm lease revenue that will support some of the Department of Land and Natural Resources other programs.  Those programs include wildlife, forestry, and parks to name a few.

This project is open to public review.  Comments on the project are due by April 7th.  To read this entire article, visit Maui News here.

New Owner For Makawao Steak House

New Owner Hoku Nui Maui, plans to revamp Makawao Steak House into a farm-to-table restaurant.  The plan would be to use only grown meat and produce provided by the 258 acre “regenerative farming community”.

The company has already put in for a liquor license as well as for having live music at the restaurant. During the transition, new items are planned to slowly be added to the menu later in the year. The farm plans to add a number of new crops including fruits and vegetables. These items will eventually supply Makawao Steak House with farm fresh produce.  The restaurant’s plan is to serve what it can grow.
