The County of Maui is inviting the public to provide feedback on their parking experiences in Lahaina and share ideas to address parking challenges during an open house for the PARK MAUI program on Saturday, March 25.
The open house will be from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Outlets of Maui, 900 Front St., in the central Banyan Tree Courtyard across from Michael Kors and Gap stores.
PARK MAUI, which is designed to minimize congestion and improve parking management at popular destinations, while also protecting sensitive resources, will be implemented in phases at Maui parks and beaches and small towns.
Subject to Maui County Council approval, the pilot phase is designed to allow Maui County residents who register to receive free parking at Maui parks and beaches at all times, as well as one to two hours of free or discounted parking in small towns. Under the proposal, non-Maui County residents would have the option to pre-purchase weekly or discounted monthly beach parking passes.
In Lahaina, the pilot phase will focus on the Luakini Street parking lot and surrounding areas.
During the open house in Lahaina, those attending can also provide feedback on pay station equipment for the PARK MAUI program being considered for select County beach parks and towns.
The open house will also seek input on bike parking, road congestion during boat days, alternative transportation and parking lot improvements in Lahaina.
