The Kula Community Association welcomes all Maui residents to our community meeting in the Kula Community Center from 7pm to 9pm this coming Wednesday, February 19. Come early and join your neighbors from 6:30pm for refreshments.
We will have an exciting and very informative evening with speakers covering topics of wide community interest to Upcountry and all of the County.
One of the most important issues facing Maui generally, and Upcountry Maui in particular, is what will be happening to the large amounts of water previously delivered to HC&S sugar fields from East Maui.
The State's Department of Land and Natural Resources will soon be auctioning off their four East Maui watershed lease areas. How will that auction be conducted? What will be the conditions for those waters imposed on the auction bid winner? The answers will greatly affect agricultural operations in Central Maui as well our Upcountry’s domestic and agricultural water supply.
Ian Hirokawa from the Department of Land and Natural Resources will describe the state's intentions with regard to the upcoming auction. Michael Williams, Kula Community Association board member, will summarize the recommendations made by a County Water Board committee regarding potential alternative models for the ownership and management of the East Maui water system.
Maui Electric’s desires to increase renewable energy has prompted AEP Company to propose more windmills near the existing wind farm on Ulupalakua Ranch land. Richard Chandler will describe the proposal to build seven new 500 foot wind turbines capable of producing 34 megawatts of electricity.
Maui Alzheimer's Association’s Christine Spencer will describe Alzheimer’s disease early signs
Finally, we will hear the big effort to get people counted in the 2020 census.
