Shopping center, Olowalu project too big for Maui

March 7, 2013
Gordon C. Cockett - Lahaina , The Maui Weekly

An article appeared in the paper about a developer complaining about having some workers on the bench and more to be added because a very large development in Kihei was squashed by the LUC, because it violated a 1995 plan that he was counting on. Well, can we all agree that we are on an island with definite limitations and grave restrictions for our living conditions?

Does it matter to him that the people of Kihei and Wailea are against that monstrous development he was counting on?

He hasn't offered to share his profits with those workers that are on the bench, has he? Of course not! But here he is playing his violin looking for sympathy. Isn't it the profit that he would be making his biggest concern? Obviously, he doesn't have a concern about what that monster would cause on the roadways.

The proposed development at Olowalu would potentially put approximately 3,000 more vehicles on the roadway there. Isn't his idea of the Kihei project bigger? That roadway which is already a gridlock from the Pali to Puamana. Are we considered blind?

Both projects are just too big for Maui. Look at what has happened to O'ahu! Are wrong to not want that to happen here on Maui? Come on, Brudda -- no make la dat!
