The Ka’ahumanu Avenue Community Corridor Master Plan
By Lauren Armstrong, Executive Director, Maui MPO
Maui County received a grant from the State of Hawai‘i to fund the Ka‘ahumanu Avenue Community Corridor study to look at opportunities for transit-oriented development within a half-mile buffer. A “community corridor” is a place that makes it easy for people to take the bus and to walk, bike, and roll. It is also a place that has many different types of affordable housing options; provides connections to schools, services, and jobs; and includes great community spaces that are welcoming and fun. The Master Plan includes a land use assessment, demographic and travel analysis, mobility system assessment, water and utility systems, market analysis and affordable housing assessment. Planners from the County of Maui Planning Department and Maui Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will share an update on the Master Plan.
