"We appreciate the patience and understanding of residents and visitors that may be affected by this project,” said Dan Quinn, State Parks administrator.

“We will keep this heavily used facility open ramp open to accommodate local fishers who want to launch into the waters off western Maui during the holiday season when demand for access and certain fish stocks is high,” said William J. Aila, DLNR chairperson. “We have assurances from our Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation, the agency that maintains and manages the facility, that it is physically possible for the ramp and existing piers to remain open and usable until the repair project start date.”

“I am pleased to announce the appointment of Alan Downer to the post of SHPD administrator,” Aila said, “With extensive experience as director for one of the nation’s largest historic preservation agencies, Downer brings tremendous experience in leadership to the Hawaii State Historic Preservation Division. I also believe his qualifications will provide SHPD with much needed direction on working with the National Park Service to meet requirements under its Corrective Action Plan.”
