Issues & Testimony 

Maui Island Plan

The WCA, represented by then President Jacob Verkerke, as well as other community members, submitted testimony throughout the entire MIP review process.  The primary focus was the desire to keep Waikapū as a unique and separate small town, not an extension of Wailuku or Kahului.  Mahalo to everyone who supported the WCA’s viewpoint.  We will continue our efforts to ensure that Waikapū’s identity is maintained.
