Q: What can be done to enforce the "No Camping" ordinance at our county parks - specifically at the lower end of Kanaha Beach Park? There is a growing unsightly encampment just off Amala Place and Kaa Street that has been there for a year! There is garbage everywhere, a smoky open fire daily, stolen shopping carts filled with debris, old furniture, and a "No Camping" sign 50 feet away! Maui County has park rangers who patrol the area daily, but they seem to ignore this growing eyesore. Allowing these camps to proliferate creates a very negative impression on our visitors, along with obvious health issues and fire risk. There are community services available to help the homeless - unlawful squatter camps in our parks should not be tolerated. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
