Makena Project To Move Forward

Maui Planning Commission received just enough votes to move forward with the proposed Makena Resort Project.  The proposed 158 Unit project would include 88 multifamily units, 20 single family cottages, 26 single family customs lots, 10 vacation rentals, and a resort oriented 14 condos and commercial space.

The planning commission has been presented with alternative plans that would include affordable workforce housing in one of the buildings.  Other proposed alternatives would be moving larger structures inward and have smaller structures be road side.
