The process to have these digitized maps replace the old, worn paper maps for Maui Island includes:
1. Conducting public meetings about the project;
2. Scheduling the new digitized replacement maps for review by the Maui Planning Commission and seeking their recommendation for approval to the Maui County Council;
3. Upon the Maui Planning Commission’s review and recommendation, scheduling the new digitized replacement maps for review by the Maui County Council Planning Committee and seeking their recommendation for approval to the Maui County Council;
4. Adoption by the Maui County Council.
A Community Plan is different to zoning in that a community plan depicts the long-term vision for a community whereas zoning provides for specific uses on a parcel today and is regulated by Maui County Code, Title 19.
No, these corrections and adjustments are only being made to the zoning maps. There will be no impact on any Community Plan designations. Some of the corrections that will be made on the zoning maps are, in fact, to better align the zoning of a parcel to a Community Plan designation. For example, the old, paper zoning maps show that some properties are partially zoned “future roadway” but there is no such zoning district as “future roadway” to govern how this area is used; some of these properties are actually developed with homes. In these cases, the DSSRT project would propose that these areas be zoned “residential” in conformance with their current use and the community plan designations of “single family.”
The Planning Department will also continually update its webpage and post any upcoming meetings and documents related to this project at http://www.co.maui.hi.us/121/Planning-Department.
