In a perfect world our communities would all make a part of the whole. Wailuku is one step closer to ideal with their reWAILUKU plan that kicked off Jan. 23 and runs through February.
The Maui Redevelopment Agency, the county Department of Planning and the Wailuku Community Association are partnering with a venue at 1980 Main Street in Wailuku Town. The idea is that citizens can come by this storefront and view current plans and history of Wailuku and share their ideas for change.
The movement has been sparked by the overwhelming success of Wailuku First Friday. “First Friday brings together a diversity of culture, age, entertainment and community awareness,” said Richard Priest, the president of the Wailuku Community Association. “As with any process, the momentum of this event is informing the Maui populace that Wailuku is a destination to visit and enjoy. We are excited to explore, investigate and share the momentum of Wailuku through the upcoming Public Design Workshop events.”
The objective of reWAILUKU is to provide a clear direction to build and sustain Wailuku Town through private investment, opportunities and partnerships for immediate and long-term capital improvement projects.
