Aloha kākou. Welcome to the County of Maui’s project website for the Historic Preservation Plan. Here you will find information about the planning process and opportunities to submit questions and ideas to help prepare Maui County’s first Historic Preservation Plan in more than 25 years.

A historic preservation plan is a proactive way to provide for the protection and management of historic and cultural resources – a critical part of a community’s long-range planning that recognizes the importance of local heritage and the physical remnants of that heritage. Maui County, in collaboration with communities, completed the first phase of the planning process in 2019 with an assessment of key preservation issues, and will begin creating the Preservation Plan in 2021.

We welcome and encourage you – the residents and stakeholders of Maui Nui – to participate in the development of the Historic Preservation Plan. Your input is crucial! There are several ways you can stay informed and share your manaʻo throughout the planning process.
