Tourism Improves our Community through Upgrades to Kamaole Beach Park III
Kamaole Beach Park III in Kihei was in need of a walkover for visitors and residents to more easily access the beautiful shorelines of South Maui. The walkover would also serve to protect the fragile dune system and native species.
Hoaloha Aina organized the project, supported by the HTA, to provide two dune walkovers–one that is in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) for wheelchair access and the other to provide access for ocean safety and police officers.
“We are proud to support projects, such as these, that help to improve our infrastructure and create a safer, better beach for all to enjoy,” said Mike McCartney, president and CEO of the HTA. “The community also came together for this project, donating their time and money to make this happen.”
More than 200 volunteers and $5,800 in monetary and material donations from the community, helped to make the project a reality. The ADA compliant ramp was completed and blessed in May 2012, with work set to begin on the second ramp in October.
