Mayor Victorino transmits resolutions to County Council for A&B land donations

Today, Mayor Michael Victorino transmitted two resolutions to the Maui County Council to accept the dedication of parks and Dairy Road roadway parcel from A&B Properties. The land acquisition agreement was announced on August 12, 2022 by the mayor and Chris Benjamin, president and CEO of Alexander & Baldwin.

“As Maui grows, we will ensure that our parks and recreational amenities are managed in a way that is equitable, to benefit everyone who lives and works here,” said Mayor Victorino. “The County’s acquisition of Baldwin Beach Park, Baby Beach (Wawaʻu Point), the 4 acres of shoreline between Mama’s Fish House and Hoʻokipa allows us to establish a North Shore Preservation Zone in perpetuity. The gifts of lands adjacent to Hoaloha Park in Kahului and Rainbow Park in Makawao are icing on the cake. Again, I thank A&B for continuing its legacy of good corporate citizenship.”

As part of the land acquisition agreement, the County of Maui will also receive eight roadway parcels on, and around, Dairy Road in Kahului. A&B’s donation of more than 45 acres of land for parks and open space culminate more than two years of negotiations led by the mayor and his administrative team. There is no cost to Maui County taxpayers to acquire these important lands.

“Mahalo to Mayor Victorino and Chris Benjamin for making this vision a reality,” said community advocate Kai Nishiki. “Protecting and preserving our beaches and shorelines for local residents is essential now and for future generations. This is excellent news for everyone who loves Maui.”
