DLNR to Host Meeting on Lahaina Ferry Improvements
The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will hold a public information event on Wednesday, July 2, on the final environmental impact statement for the proposed Lahaina Small Boat Harbor ferry pier improvements.
This meeting will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the West Maui Senior Center, 788 Pauoa St., in Lahaina.
The proposed project has been reduced in scope due to the extensive consultation that has been ongoing with the regulatory agencies and the Section 106 consultation groups. Dredging to widen the harbor basin as originally proposed has been eliminated from the project scope.
The new interisland ferry pier will be located approximately 60 feet to the north of the existing pier at the Lahaina Small Boat Harbor. It will be approximately 115 feet long and 20 feet wide (reduced from the originally proposed 35 feet), will be on piles, and will be able to accommodate approximately 100 passengers.
