LUC to hear arguments on Kihei projects
The state Land Use Commission on Thursday is scheduled to hear oral closing arguments and to consider a challenge to the development of two large retail centers and 250 affordable housing units proposed in north Kihei.
The meeting is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. at the Courtyard Maui Kahului Airport's Haleakala Room in Kahului.
Commissioners possibly will decide whether the retail centers and housing development proposed by Eclipse Development Group of California are in compliance with 20 conditions imposed in 1995 when the panel granted a land reclassification from agricultural to urban to former landowner Kaonoulu Ranch for a light industrial development.
A challenge from groups, South Maui Citizens for Responsible Growth and The Maui Tomorrow Foundation, and Kihei resident Daniel Kanahele prompted the commission to take up the development in the context of the 1995 land use change and conditions.
