Pilot program suggested by King a great idea
What a great idea — a pilot program to make one specific area exempt from the Maui law prohibiting people from sleeping in their cars. Thanks to County Council Member Kelly King and others for pushing this problem-solving idea! There is no magic wand solution for the homeless problem, but this will help some homeless families have a safe place to sleep until they can find an affordable rental or other solution.
By limiting this pilot project to one carefully chosen place, the South Maui Regional Park, we are working to help some of Maui’s homeless families perhaps take a step toward housing. And if we can help kids stuck in this unfortunate situation, all the better.
Come on corporation counsel, find a way to make it happen. Be part of the solution.
