Affordable housing within the project has been discussed within
the community. The project team has met with the Director of Housing
and Human Concerns to discuss the affordable needs of the project.
The project will provide for affordable housing in the low, moderate
and median income ranges consistent with the Kihei/Makena Community
Plan. This range of housing will address the concerns of the department
and the current needs of the community. In its discussions with
the public, administration and Planning Commission, the project
team has stressed repeatedly that affordable housing is an important
element of any community and that the project will accommodate this
need. Some of the project’s affordable housing component may
be located outside of the project in an area located closer to public
infrastructure in the greater Kihei community.
