The County of Maui commissioned an Aquatics Master Plan Study in June 2017 as a follow up to the 2017 Recreation Needs and Preferences Survey and as a part of the Maui Department of Parks and Recreation System Plan. The Aquatics Master Plan was prepared by PRB Hawaii and Associates, Inc. and Counsilman-Hunsaker. Plan support was provided by KAI Hawaii, Inc., Okahara & Associates, Inc., and J. Uno & Associates, Inc. The County of Maui Parks and Recreation Department staff, stakeholder groups, and public meetings also provided consultation.
Counsilman-Hunsaker reviewed the physical and functional aspects of the eight existing aquatic facilities, reviewed changes in Maui’s demographics, and met with the community to gather input on the diverse aquatic needs of Maui County. The Master Plan included an assessment of both the physical and functional aspects of each pool and included recommendations on repairs or replacements for each facility. It also included data collection, needs analysis, conceptual plans of potential facilities, and a recommended implementation strategy.
Upon completion, the Aquatics Master Plan will be incorporated into the seven District Master Plans that will help guide the vision and mission of Maui County.
