Should there be additional restrictions on development in Kakaako? Why?
Not at this time. We should monitor the Legislature’s 2014 changes to the HCDA law and board membership which should provide the general public and Kakaako residents more notice and opportunity to raise concerns and to challenge decisions about the timing, pace and type of development in the Kakaako District.
What is your one big idea?
Continue building Central Maui’s health and human services continuum of care and capacity by improving and modernizing the public infrastructure leading to and within the expanding health/higher education corridor between Maui Memorial Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente, Central Maui’s physician offices and UH Maui College.
