County Council lauded for affordable housing plan

At the April 3 Maui County Council meeting, Mike Molina proposed a resolution for creation of a comprehensive affordable housing plan. Stand Up Maui (formerly Face Maui) has advocated for this action for the past three years.

The plan will create a roadmap to build the homes needed for residents in affordable and workforce income groups, to streamline the process of building these homes, to pay for it, and more.

Once the plan is created, we the community can keep ourselves on the path of really providing affordable homes in perpetuity for the present and future generations.

Stand Up Maui thanks the entire council and especially Molina for taking a huge step forward to find answers to Maui’s housing crisis. Please thank our council members for their bold action for the welfare of Maui County’s residents.

Finally, I personally thank Mike Williams for the research and development of a guiding document for Maui County to take the step today — the creation of a comprehensive affordable housing plan.
