Community invited to town hall on affordable apartments in Lahaina
LĀHAINĀ, Hawai‘i—Councilmember Tamara Paltin announced today she will host an in-person community town hall on Feb. 22 at 5 p.m. at the Lahaina Civic Center Amphitheater to discuss upcoming affordable-housing opportunities in Lahaina.
Discussion will include comprehensive information regarding the application, lottery and lease process, and construction updates for Kaiāulu o Kupuohi and Kaiāulu o Kūku‘ia apartment projects developed by Ikaika Ohana. Paltin encourages West Maui residents earning 60 percent or below the area median income to learn about and apply for the projects.
“I anticipate this meeting to serve as a great resource for Lāhainā residents who would like to know how to prepare to apply for these crucial low-income housing units,” said Paltin, who is in her second term holding the council’s West Maui residency area seat. “Ikaika Ohana recognizes that many in our community are anxiously awaiting these projects and are committed to equipping our eligible residents to apply.”
Paltin said income qualifications can be reviewed at page 9 on the county’s online Income Limits and Affordable Rent Guidelines: https://tinyurl.com/LahainaApts.
The town hall will also include an update on Front Street Apartments, Paltin said.
Seating will not be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets, and sit in family or household groups to adhere to social distancing.
