Volunteers are being solicited to serve on the West Maui Ocean Recreation Management Area Advisory Committee.
The committee will offer recommendations to the state Department of Land and Natural Resources on issues relating to uses and maintenance of state waters within the West Maui Ocean Recreation Management Area, particularly in the waters off Kaanapali. The December death of Lahaina diver and paddler William Gonzales in waters off Hanakaoo Beach prompted legislation from Maui lawmakers.
The committee will be composed of users of the ocean. The deadline for submissions of letters of interest is July 25 at 4:30 p.m.
Letters may be mailed to DLNR, Division of Boating and Recreation, Maui District manager, Nicholas Giaconi, 101 Maalaea Boat Harbor Road, Wailuku 96793; faxed to 234-5829, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
