Neighbors’ reaction to development is justified

Regarding a June 19 letter on Kula neighbors not being surprised by development: Having a visitors center in the Kula Longs shopping area open every day, all day, I presume, is not the same as a church holding services and meetings several times a week.

I don’t believe the reaction of several people against this development is ridiculous. They understand what a huge difference tourist attractions make to an area compared to the impact of churches. They also know there are other resources on Maui who provide information on Hawaiian history to anyone.
