Lahaina Tenants Receive Positive News

Over 250 residents of Front Street Apartments in Lahaina received good news. Governor David Ige signed a bill to keep rents from increasing to market prices. Hawaii Finance and Development Corporation will begin negotiations with the Front Street Apartments owners in the hopes of acquiring the property.

Owners of the affordable housing apartments originally wanted to raise the rent rates to market value by August 2019. Hawaii Finance and Development Corporation (HHFDC) have put a hold until August 2020 for now while court proceedings filed by tenants are completed or until HHFDC can purchase the property.

HHFDC is undergoing the due diligence process for appraisal and funding of the apartments. Although the saga isn’t fully over, there is hope for the tenants that a solution is around the corner and that they will be able to maintain their residences.

Police Officers Build Community At Maui Youth Center

Police officers took advantage of the beginning of summer to visit the Kihei Youth Center. The outreach is to encourage children to be safe and to stay out of trouble. The officers use this time to let them know how important the kids are as well as their families and their community.

Officers took part in playing basketball and dodgeball even donating balls purchased with their own money. By bridging the gap between the police and children, the children will be more likely to come to officers if they are in need of help.

This program, Sports For Kids, is run by school resource officers during school brakes. The program is hoping to expand and reach other areas this year and in the future.

Renewable Energy Forum

On June 26th, located at the J. Walter Cameron Center Auditorium, officials will be discussing how Maui can be powered 100% renewable energy. Maui Electric Co., Maui Tomorrow and the Sierra Club will be discussing how to make this a reality at the event titled “100% Renewable Energy: What Will Maui Look Like?”.

Maui reached 38% renewable energy production back in 2018. Over the goal of 30% by 2020. Panelists will discuss and share what can be done to work toward the 100% renewable energy goal by 2045. The need is for carbon-neutral power, and technology that includes solar and wind.

Light refreshments will be served at 5:30 pm prior to the 6:00 pm start time. This is a free event that is open to the public.
