Guzman calls for parks care, proposes volunteer policy

WAILUKU, Hawaii – The Maui County Council’s Economic Development, Energy, Agriculture, and Recreation Committee will consider a bill on Tuesday, July 29, at 1:30 p.m., to implement a park volunteer policy for Maui County, Committee Chair Don Guzman announced today. 

Adopt a parks policy

Guzman said the policy would provide opportunities for volunteers and donors to maintain, preserve, beautify and improve county playing fields and parks, including beaches. 

“I’ve received an overwhelming amount of requests from park users for opportunities to give back and provide care for the park facilities they utilize,” Guzman said. “Having the ability for organizations to adopt a park under the guidance of the Parks Department, will instil a sense of pride and responsibility among members of the community.”

The bill seeks to establish  implementing and guiding components, application and reporting requirements, and provides for the appointment of a park volunteer coordinator. A copy of the bill and the meeting agenda is available online at mauicounty.gov/committees/ear.

The meeting will be held in the Council Chamber on the 8th floor of the Kalana O Maui building, 200 S. High St. in Wailuku. Testimony may be submitted in person or by email to ear.committee@mauicounty.us.
