Maui County Council revises long-term plan for Lanai


The future of Lanai is under consideration.

The Maui County Council has a revised long-term plan for the Pineapple Isle.

Among the changes, plans to build a new resort on the eastern side of the island were scrapped due to lack of resources.

“This plan was predicated on a desalination plant going in and right now, that plant is not sure it’s going to go in or not,” said Don Couch, Maui County Council Planning Commission Chair. “We put language in there (that says) look, if you don’t have the water in there, you can’t do this essentially.”

The public will be able to comment on the plan before it is actually approved.Click here to view the plan in its entirety online.
