Over the course of FY15, the MRA had several accomplishments. The Agency provided testimony that led to the County Council exempting the Redevelopment Area from the Workforce Housing Ordinance. The MRA funded a branding effort that developed a new logo, on-street banners and a Wailuku Town website
. The MRA has made amendments to the Zoning and Development Code to make it easier for the dining and entertainment uses to open their doors in Wailuku Town. The design for the Iao Square public plaza and parking area was finalized this year and currently being bid for construction.
Recent agenda items include updates to the Wailuku Redevelopment Area Zoning and Development Code; the Mayor’s FY 2016 Budget and the Wailuku Redevelopment Area Projects reviewed for discussion and strategies for support; working in partnership with MPD’s Community Policing and Crisis Intervention teams to improve the cleanliness and safety of Wailuku town; and the anticipated schedule and draft plans for Public Work’s resurfacing and re-striping of the Wailuku Municipal Parking Lot.
