Save Honolua Coalition

The Save Honolua Coalition formed in late 2006 as a community grassroots response to Maui Land & Pineapple Co. conceptual plans for development of a golf course, “surf park” and luxury homes overlooking Honolua Bay. In May of 2007 we gained our federal 501(c)3 nonprofit status. We wanted to save Honolua from development but knew we couldn’t do it alone, thus the name Save Honolua Coalition. Our all volunteer board has been able to work with politicians, government agencies, various community groups, private businesses and like minded non-governmental organizations to secure $20 million during the 2013 legislative session for acquisition of 280 acres at Honolua, four miles of which is coastline. We have also collaborated with other groups and agencies on: quarterly community clean-ups, installation of day-use mooring buoys, community water quality monitoring and permitting, funding and installation of port-a-potties. The DLNR has plans for a State Park at Honolua in the future and we are currently undergoing pre-planning efforts with community planner Bob Agres to determine what our role will be in the future of Honolua.
