our proposed approach

Within Lahaina Town, paid on-street parking will improve access and availability by encouraging turnover and longer-term parking in the nearby surface parking lots. Employees will have affordable and reliable parking and transportation alternatives that do not require re-parking during the workday or shift.

The PARK MAUI program will require non-residents to pay for parking in all small towns.  The program will offer employee parking passes and two-hours of free residential off-street parking.

what we're doing

Lahaina Town was previously evaluated as part of the 2018 Parking Action Plan. It was determined that this location faces parking management challenges that could be alleviated by the PARK MAUI program. The County of Maui also aims to balance access to our unique small towns while continuing to improve our stewardship of our ‘aina and cultural resources.

Other ideas

"Cruise ships should pay more fees to cover costs of cleaning restrooms, collecting trash."

"Cruise  ships should dock in Kahului. Lahaina is a small boat harbor."

"People  find it easier to access micro shuttle."

"Cars parking on the road side are not considerate to others, and take up more than one spot. Lines indicating spots would help."

"Front street, whalers village deck often full, Kaanapali beach area you often have to park very far away or pay tons of money at a hotel to park your car."

"I don't know if they have the 4th Friday back. But that would be great to have it back. Or some kind of entertainment on Friday nights."

"Available reasonable parking for those of us who own and or work in Wailuku, especially since we had this before the new Four Level Parking Structure was started."

"Re-start First Friday."

"More help for houseless."

"Make tourists park in garage and leave street parking to locals and residents. Don't charge residents of Maui to park where we work and shop!"

"More streets to get through school/work traffic and parking."

"Public Art"

"Encourage and incentivize business creation, building maintenance and painting. Direct money to downtown plantings and trash pickup."

"Be more walking friendly. Getting more small, local businesses, especially restaurants."

maui beach parks

Which challenges in parks/beach parking lots do you believe should be prioritized?

"Possible hour restrictions for non residents."

"Need more handicapped parking."

"Poor restroom facilities at some beaches."

"Kihei and Wailea is where I go. there needs to be a limit of divers and snorkelers, tourists need to be limited, police and DLNR need to enforce more. tourists are always going up to turtles and get in the way of locals trying to fish. they use sunscreen that is damaging reefs still. I see people using soap and shampoo at Charley Park by Kamaole beach park, too many surf schools at the bay in Kihei and reef are affected. no parking for locals is an issue at the beach parks. water pressure should be limited at Charley park. enforce no plastic and no cigarette smoking on beaches. DLNR should give out tickets to smokers and those harassing turtles."

"Paving more of the parking lots like across street at Kamaole 1 and at Keawekapu. Since they are not striped parking lots, less cars fit. Need a drop off area at Kamaole beach parksExcessive number of homeless people taking up space leaving trash making it unsafe for those who visit

maui beach parks

Which challenges in parks/beach parking lots do you believe should be prioritized?

"Possible hour restrictions for non residents."

"Need more handicapped parking."

"Poor restroom facilities at some beaches."

:Too many commercial vehicles at Ulua and Makena Landing. Lighting too dim at some lots. Kam 1 lot next to ABC needs to be paved and not used for storing construction materials."

"I find that I am limited to certain beaches by parking availability. I cannot walk long distances. I go to Keawekapu almost daily but have not been to Ulua or Wailea Beach in years because there is no parking. I am a 17 year resident of Kihei."

"Ulua should not allow dive companies, Keawakapu has too much parking allocated to Days Inn that is often vacant while locals have no parking."

"More space at Ulua and Makena."

"Would love free Bicycle parking at Ulua beach, especially if paid parking out into place."

"Ulua -- hopefully there will be a graduated scale for parking. Most people are there for only a few hours if diving, snorkeling or walking. If only option is a day pass, then the tendency will be to stay all day, thus making few places available."

"Make Ulua beach parking one way, to better manage parking. Excessive number of homeless people taking up space leaving trash making it unsafe for those who visit."
