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.
Wailuku 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 Wailuku Garage is currently under construction and will be the County’s first multi-level parking facility. The upper levels of the garage will be allocated for permit parking to ensure that the convenient lower levels are prioritized for customers. The County will offer affordable employee parking permits to employees of businesses and government offices located within Wailuku.
The rate in the garage will be lower than the surrounding on-street locations so it will be a desirable location to park throughout the day. It is important to encourage long-term parking off-street and prioritize the most convenient on-street parking for quicker visits like banking or picking up a coffee. By directing drivers who plan to stay in town for more than an hour or to, to the garage, this will minimize congestion from drivers searching for parking on-street.
