Mahalo to everyone that came out to the third Baldwin Beach Park Master Plan on August 22, 2019 at the Paia Community Center. It was a packed house and we appreciate everyone that wanted to give their feedback to the County. The open house meetings are the beginning of the master plan phase and we are years out into redeveloping the park. If you feel like you need to give your feedback to the people that make the decisions you still have time. You can contact the County of Maui Parks Department and/or our elected official Councilmember Molina. We don't have photos from this meeting. We were busy trying to help answer questions and point people to the right direction where they could give their feedback.
