Next week, the County of Maui will be heading to Kihei to seek public feedback on pay station equipment for their PARK MAUI program being considered for select County beach parks and towns. Watch for their interactive display at Kihei 4th Friday at Azeka Mauka on Friday, March 24th, 6 to 9 p.m.
PARK MAUI is the County of Maui's new parking management program that strives to implement data-driven solutions for parking at beach parks, in business districts, and on streets throughout our island’s most heavily utilized areas. The pilot phase will begin this summer with new parking procedures and equipment in place at Ulua/Mokapu Beach Park (Wailea), Kamaole Beach Parks (Kihei) and select areas in the towns of Lahaina and Wailuku.
PARK MAUI will offer a Maui Resident Program so that residents with a Maui County address on their driver’s license can register to qualify for free and discounted parking. There will be an easy application process for residents to register to receive free parking at all County park and beach parking lots at all times. Within small towns, the Maui Resident Program will offer benefits like 1 to 2 hours of free parking and/or discounted parking rates consistent with currently allowed parking time limits by area.
Employees within the small towns and around the resort areas will be able to apply for an employee permit so that they do not need to worry about moving their car during a shift.
Those who are not Maui County residents will be required to pay for parking at all PARK MAUI paid parking locations, but the paid parking experience will still be easy and convenient.
