Shoreline park is a blessing for West Maui

The last piece of the pali-to-Puamana shoreline park is in place. The County Council approved the purchase of the final link, 186 acres from Puamana to the Solid Waste Transfer Station, for $13 million at the 11th hour.

Thank you to the mayor for persistence in seeing this parkway completed. With stakeholders working together, everybody is a winner, including the community, the county and the landowner.

What a blessing for West Maui, we are all blessed for this decision. Mahalo ke akua. Na Kupuna O Maui congratulates the County of Maui for fulfilling its responsibility to improve our quality of life on the west side.

This land is our land. It is up to us, West Maui, to determine how it will be used for the betterment of all.

Na Kupuna O Maui has a vision. We need more playing fields for our keiki. Unite to help us have this aina designated as a healthy, drug- and alcohol-free facility for our families.

West Maui has grown with children. They desperately need fields to be engaged in value-building activities. Na Kupuna O Maui supports soccer, football, basketball, cheerleaders and tennis.

Join us. Write to the mayor and thank him for his support throughout the years. Ask the mayor to save this land for the keiki.
