This phase of the project was built around a community process to establish a vision for the corridor grounded in the first round of public outreach, our technical analyses, and best practices for transit-oriented communities. Through a week of public events in late February and early March 2023 and collaboration with our Technical Advisory Committee, we created new ideas for connections and land uses to make the Community Corridor work for everyone.

Walking Tours 

We held four walking tours focused on the Keawe St area (including Gateway and Cannery Malls) and the Pioneer Mill area (including the Outlets of Maui), led by national expert Mark Fenton. These tours invited community members to experience the corridor on foot and highlighted both challenges and opportunities. Participants discussed creative solutions to transportation, land use, and housing needs with Maui County and Maui MPO staff, elected officials, and the project team.

Community Open House

We invited the West Maui community to join us for an open house at the Lahaina Senior Center. We shared a brief presentation and engaged people through activity stations. The activities gathered input on the Community Corridor vision, features of a new West Maui Transit Hub, the types of housing that are most needed in West Maui, and critical areas for safe and accessible transportation connections.

Stakeholder Workshops

We worked with stakeholders and County staff to begin developing concepts for the TOC sites over the course of two days. We explored opportunities for a new West Maui transit hub, more affordable and workforce housing, and safer ways to bike, walk, and roll. By rethinking some of the corridor’s important spaces—like the Pioneer Mill, Cannery and Gateway Malls, the Outlets of Maui, and parts of Kāanapali near Whalers Village—we began to envision how these places could better serve the needs of the community for years to come.

Community Drop-In Session

To showcase the feedback we received throughout the week, we held a drop-in session at the Arts Festival at Cannery Mall. We shared what we learned and the draft ideas that emerged through the tours, open house, and workshops, inviting the community to provide additional comments on the preliminary work.
