Harry Eagar reports on the Maui Planning Commission‘s plans to adopt New Urbanism for its new Maui Island Plan. They have the right idea as far as how New Urbanism works to preserve rural landscapes – growth is going to happen, so you better consentrate it where you want it and outlaw it where you don’t. The plan will be much more resident-friendly than previous plans (as opposed to tourist-friendly). They are planning on a growth boundary and hope to encourage more walking and less driving. Hopefully it will funnel the projected growth of the island into areas that won’t effect what makes Maui such a wonderful place that so many want to visit.
