System Planning

The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is preparing a System Plan of Maui County that would define the future recreation, facility, and park needs, create an overall strategy for park planning, and identify specific capital improvement or land acquisition needs throughout the County.  The System Plan will consist of seven District Plans which focus on the individual needs for each of these areas.  With this structure, DPR will have a comprehensive plan that includes a county-wide strategy along with specific District Plans that incorporate an Aquatics Facilities Plan.
The primary objective of DPR is to provide high quality parks, recreational facilities and recreation programming opportunities to the youth, persons with disabilities, senior citizens and adults of Maui County, through collaborative partnerships and community interaction.  DPR has initiated its first round of community input with community meetings in mid-September and welcomes feedback through the projects website.
