For nearly two decades Maui Tomorrow Foundation has worked in partnership with many community groups on issues vital to Maui’s quality of life.
The creation of a 155 acre beach park at Puu Ola‘i/Makena, a site where luxury condos once were planned, is just one example of these combined community efforts.
When a large luxury estate was proposed at Hawea Point, Maui Tomorrow joined with West Maui citizen groups to protect the two acre area. Today Hawea Point is open for public use, fishing, and recreational access.
Without timely legal intervention by Maui Tomorrow, Kamaole Point in Kihei would now be a private development.
When a golf course was proposed for their town, the Hana Community Association joined forces with Maui Tomorrow and filed for legal intervention.
Maui Tomorrow advocated, as part of a coalition of community groups, for an airport freight inspection facility at Kahului, to prevent unwanted pests from entering our island.
EAST MAUI STREAM FLOW
Today we are working with the residents of Keanae, Wailuanui and Huelo to see flows restored to East Maui’s historic streams so that traditional agriculture can continue.
WEST MAUI STREAM FLOW
We are allied with Hui o Na Wai ‘Eha, OHA, Maui County and others, working to ensure the restoration of natural flows to streams from Waikapu to Waihe‘e.
Alongside the Wailuku Forest Preservation Coalition, Maui Tomorrow aims to forestall risky development in the steep slopes above Wailuku Heights.
We were the first to call for a non-profit land trust as well as an affordable housing land trust. Both have now been established on Maui.
We are proud to be one of the many voices in our community speaking out for planning that delivers real benefits for Maui’s families and respects our natural and cultural resources.
Do we challenge the easy answers our leaders often hear from paid consultants?
YES, WE DO.
