The Hansen Ohana Gives Back To The Community

Thank you Clint Hansen, Maui Paintball Owner and Broker/Partner at The Hansen Ohana’s Maui Luxury Real Estate LLC, for giving back to our Maui community and Maui’s future by supporting the teen academy and the Children’s Justice Center.

Maui Paintball hosted police training simulation for approximately 10 teens who participated in the second annual Maui Police Department Teen Academy. Not only did the teens learn firearm safety, they participated in fitness training, CPR training, toured a correctional facility, and also toured the Wailuku Police Station cooperatively with Pyramis Company.

To participate in the program, students must show an interest in a police career, and have a minimum GPA of 2.0. Students must fill out an application and be interviewed by a three-officer panel before being chosen as one of the ten to participate.

Clint Hansen donates the use of the paintball field, time of his employees, safety gear, and equipment to the program. To read more about the Teen Academy, visit the Maui News website here.

Congratulations to all on the continued success of the program!

Makena Resort Moves Forward

Maui Planning Commission is receiving praise for unanimously approving the SMA (special management area) for the $354.5 million Makena Resort.

The project was scaled down from 158 units to 134 units. These will include multifamily units, cottages, custom lots, and commercial space.

The project cut three multifamily buildings, two cottages, and one vacation rental unit. Lots for custom homes were moved and parking for the beach was increased.

Commissioners were won over by the attention to the community the project gave.  The resort has generated 160 jobs during the construction phase, and approximately 145 jobs will result from resort operations.
