HONOLUA BAY and LIPOA POINT PRESERVATION PLANNING BEGINS
(Kapalua) –The Dept. of Land and Natural Resources is in the process of developing a management plan for Honolua Bay and Lipoa Point on Maui’s west coast. The plan will help guide the preservation of environment, cultural, and recreational resources by balancing current and future uses of the area, along with practices to develop appropriate policies and actions.
A Honolua Bay and Līpoa Point Report prepared by an outside consultant provides the DLNR with a scope for developing the management plan for the 244 acres of land acquired by the State of Hawaiʻi from the Maui Land & Pineapple Inc. (MLP) in 2014.
The property is located makai of the Honoapiʻilani Highway and includes Honolua Bay, Kulaokaʻeʻa (the headland and coastal areas of Līpoa Point), Keoneheleleʻi Beach (aka Windmills), and portions of Honōkohau Bay. It is the home to abundant marine resources, terrestrial plants, historical and archaeological sites, and ocean recreation.
This area is currently unencumbered land under the DLNR Land Division.
The plan will assist DLNR in establishing management objectives and policies and identify appropriate agencies and organizations to consult with in the implementation of management.
This project is currently in the research and information gathering stage and future public meetings/workshops are planned.
