Makena Resort Got The OK Today

WAILUKU — Maui County Council members voted 5-3 late Friday night, approving the controversial Makena Resort redevelopment on second and final reading — with 44 development conditions.

Voting in favor of rezoning 603 acres in South Maui to accommodate the 800-unit luxury home development were Council Members Riki Hokama, Bill Medeiros, Mike Molina, Joe Pontanilla and Mike Victorino. Casting dissenting votes were Council Members Michelle Anderson, Danny Mateo and Jo Anne Johnson. Council Member Gladys Baisa was traveling out of state and excused.

The council members’ vote ended another long day of testimony and debate in the Maui County Council Chambers as opponents of the massive Makena Resort made a last-ditch effort to get enough council members to reverse their previous votes and halt the controversial development. Instead, council members stuck by positions they held in a Dec. 11 initial vote on the project.

The final vote came at 10:50 p.m. Friday.

Aloha Friday – All I Want For Christmas Is …..

NO, it’s not YOU (unless you are a professional organizer). That sounds great on the Mariah Carey’s, song “all I want for Christmas is you“… but as for me, all I want for Christmas is an organizer! This working mama is overwhelmed. It’s hard enough to balance work and family during regular days – throw in a holiday and I go crazy! Or maybe I don’t need an organizer – I need a helper (and a message therapist to soothe my aching back).

OK, so much for the whine … I know you didn’t come here to listen to my whining. Today is Aloha Friday. Time to take it easy as Kalani said. For those who are new and don’t know about the Aloha Friday Carnival, you can check read post and there’s a brief explanation there. To those of you who knows the routine, my question for this week is:

What do you want for Christmas this year? Please share, leave a comment. Then go to An Island Life and visit and comment on others as well. Aloha!
