Q: I have a question regarding the South Maui Community Park. My understanding is that it’s to be built in three phases, with Phase 1, the softball field (many softball players I know say it's one of the best fields in the state), playground area, and one soccer field having been open 3-4 years already. It's a nice park, and when completed will provide some much-needed athletic fields and open space. My question is, when will the other phsases be completed? Is there a plan? Mahalo.
A: Yes, there is a Master Plan for the South Maui Community Park complex, which includes a gymnasium, three soccer fields, two softball fields, one baseball field, five multi-purpose outdoor courts, a pavilion and amphitheater, “tot lots” and comfort stations (restrooms).
As you mentioned, Phase 1A of the project has already been completed. Parks Planning is currently in the design development stage of Phase 1B, the gymnasium/recreation center. We anticipate construction of this phase to begin in the first quarter of 2016.
The Parks’ 6-Year CIP plan includes requesting funding to complete Phase 2 – Amphitheater and Four Fields, as well as for Phase 3 – Multi Purpose Outdoor Courts.
