REMINDER: County of Maui Permitting Workshop Registration Due

Registration form and payment are due by Friday, 25 November 2011.

PRESS RELEASE
October 10, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Permitting for Professionals Workshop

WAILUKU, Maui, Hawai`i – The County of Maui is putting on a technical workshop for architects, contractors, engineers and other building professionals that should enable them to get their County permits faster.

The Permitting for Professionals Workshop is scheduled for December 9th at Maui Economic Opportunity (MEO), located at 99 Mahalani Street in Wailuku. The workshop is limited to the first 100 participants and will cost $25 each to cover light refreshments and lunch.

The workshop will focus on improving the permit submittal review process, reducing processing times and avoiding common mistakes which end up delaying the approval of projects.

“Although we are looking at developing new industries, the construction industry is still a huge part of this County’s economy,” said Mayor Alan Arakawa. “This workshop is geared towards getting these construction projects flowing again by removing obstacles and common mistakes made when people apply for permits.

“By working together we can get construction industry off the bench and back to work.”

The workshop was put together by the Permit Process Improvement Team, a multi-departmental working group headed by Managing Director Keith Regan and Executive Assistant Randy Piltz.

"We believe this workshop will assist us in moving forward with our plans to improve the permitting system here at the County by taking a more comprehensive and pragmatic approach,” said Managing Director Regan. “We are focusing on both process improvement and education as keys to improving our permitting system overall. 
 
This workshop will help us address the educational component and help our professionals gain additional understanding of our processes."

“Having been in the private sector I can tell you that I know the frustration that’s out there,” said Randy Piltz. “But it doesn’t have to be that way and we’ve been working very hard to fix it.”

Presenting departments will include the Department of Water Supply, Department of Public Works, Department of Fire and Public Safety, Department of Environmental Management, Department of Planning, Department of Housing and Human Concerns, and the State Office of Environmental Quality Control. 

Although this permitting workshop is open to the public, the County is urging those in the building industry to attend, as much of this information is technical and would best be absorbed by engineers, planners and other professionals.

Please RSVP by mailing a check made payable to “Hawaii Society of Professional Engineers, Maui Chapter”, PO Box 4119, Kahului, Hawaii  96733.  Registration form may be downloaded at the following weblink: http://mauicounty.gov/ppitworkshopreg.  Registration form and payment must be received by November 25, 2011.

Should you have any questions, please contact Wendy Taomoto, County CIP Coordinator at (808)270-7855 or email her at wendy.taomoto@co.maui.hi.us.
