It was with great interest that I read that Harbor Quest LLC has proposed plans for a new harbor near Mala Wharf. Although there are many hurdles to overcome, I believe in the end it would have a very positive impact on our community and would improve Lahaina's economy.
Plans for the new harbor are forward-thinking, creative and imaginative. Although several residents have expressed their concern about the construction of the harbor, I would like to see the various obstacles examined by professionals before making a definitive decision on the proposed project.
Lance Thomas from Harbor Quest wrote quite an informative letter to the editor, which appeared in the Sept. 13 Lahaina News. In my view, this is a visionary use of land that could enhance the entire community.
