Maui County to open New Service Center at Maui Business Park

According to an article at Maui Now, Maui County is starting construction on a new service center on Hookele Street in Kahului, to house operations for three departments: Department of Finance, Department of Housing and Human Concerns, and Department of Public Works (including Development Services Administration). This proposed new location would likely move the building permit approval offices out of Wailuku, so architects, contractors, and developers would coordinate their project permits at the New Service Center in Kahului.

AIA Maui members may want to weigh in on this change, is the new location a benefit or would it be better to keep the Development Services Administration in Wailuku? Does the new location have better access for users or is there a value to having the services within an existing town center? Submit comments on the change to the Planning Committee, our organization can share any concerns with the County of Maui.
