Issues & Testimony
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.
The WCA, represented by then President Jacob Verkerke, and other community members expressed their concerns about the possible encroachment of the proposed project into the Waikapū community. Issues were raised about open space, the number of housing units proposed, water sources, traffic, and a loss of identity for Waikapū. We will also continue to provide testimony when needed.
