The Planning Committee will hold six public meetings from Monday, Oct. 28, to Dec. 3 to receive input on the pending Home Business Bill, Councilmember Don Couch announced last week.
Councilmember Couch, who chairs the committee, said the Council is considering legislation to permit and regulate home-based businesses in certain zoning districts. He said the committee will review and discuss allowable types of home businesses and develop appropriate regulations for particular operations.
"I want to encourage entrepreneurship and support residents who want to earn a living from home," Councilmember Couch said. "However, we need to address what constitutes a 'nuisance' or other inappropriate commercial activities that potentially impact community character and quality of life for neighbors."
The meetings are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
The public is encouraged to attend. Meeting agendas and the bill are available on the Planning Committee Website at www.mauicounty.gov/committees.pc.
