Comments sought on housing plan

After completing three months of affordable housing community meetings across Maui, Molokai, and Lanai, local nonprofit Hawaiian Community Assets (HCA) is asking residents to provide their solutions for Maui County’s affordable housing plan.

Feedback will guide the building of 5,000 affordable housing units in Maui County over the next five years, according to a news release.

“We are asking residents to step up and share their affordable housing solutions no later than March 14, in order to make our timeline to present to the Maui County Council,” said Jeff Gilbreath, HCA’s executive director. “The more voices we have, the more comprehensive our plan will be in addressing our community’s needs.”

HCA was awarded a contract from the Office of Council Services in November to engage community and develop recommendations for a comprehensive affordable housing plan that will reviewed by the Maui County Council beginning March 15.

Maui County residents can view HCA’s affordable housing community meetings on replay on Akaku TV (Channel 53) at 7 p.m., beginning today through March 11 or online at akaku.org. After viewing, participants should go to MauiHousingPlan.org and click “Share Solutions” to provide their feedback no later than March 14.
