An informational meeting on management plans for state lands between Honolua Bay and Honokohau Bay in West Maui will be held Tuesday, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources announced.

The state acquired this area in 2014 following a tremendous effort by the community to manage development of the agricultural lands surrounding Honolua Bay, according to a news release. DLNR has prepared a draft management plan for the area that will be the focus of the meeting.

The meeting will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom at us06web.zoom.us/j/89507 150495. It will include a presentation of the key recommendations from the Draft Honolua to Honokohau Management Plan followed by time for questions and answers. The purpose of the draft plan is to provide a comprehensive strategy for the stewardship of state land makai of Honoapiilani Highway between the two bays. The plan addresses critical management issues such as coastal resilience, overuse, public safety, environmental protection and facility needs in the context of climate change.

The community will also be able to provide input on the draft plan in 2022 as part of the environmental assessment preparation process.
