KCA to set priorities at its meeting on Tuesday

Jan. 15 is the third Tuesday of the month, and as we have since incorporation in 1960, the Kihei Community Association general membership meeting commences at 6:30 p.m., now at St. Theresa Church Hall, 25 W. Lipoa St. We will be exploring a list of items and issues of concern this year in our region, which will allow our members to set some priorities. Sure, we have some of those we have been trying to achieve for decades, such as required infrastructure to become a walkable/bikeable community. Others, like how to get a bridge across Kulanihakoi river gulch on South Kihei Road? And many more beyond infrastructure.

We had hoped to have a number of officials in attendance, but this evening precedes the opening of the state Legislature the following morning, so most advised not available, but our council member and now chair, Kelly King, will be there.

We will also announce to the members the results of the 2019 board’s election of officers.

This first meeting for the 2019 kicks off our renewed drive for donations to the Maui Food Bank. Donations tend to taper off after the holiday season, but the need does not. Estimates range around 10 percent of keiki and kupuna who go to bed hungry on Maui each night.

The meeting is open to all; membership is not required, but encouraged. See www.gokihei.org to become a member or sign up for our newsletter. More information, call (508) 499-9996. Like it? Like us on Facebook.
