The 6 p.m. meeting tomorrow in Kaunakakai will gather public input on Maui County’s pending Home Business Bill. This will be one of six countywide meetings to receive feedback on this bill between Oct. 28 and Dec. 3.

Maui County Councilmember Don Couch, who chairs the county Planning Committee, said the council is considering legislation to permit and regulate home-based businesses in certain zoning districts. He said the committee will review and discuss allowable types of home businesses and develop appropriate regulations for particular operations.

“I want to encourage entrepreneurship and support residents who want to earn a living from home,” Councilmember Couch said. “However, we need to address what constitutes a ‘nuisance’ or other inappropriate commercial activities that potentially impact community character and quality of life for neighbors.”

The public is encouraged to attend. Meeting agendas and the bill are available on the Planning Committee website at www.mauicounty.gov/committees.pc.

For more information, contact Councilmember Couch’s office at 808-270-7108 or via e-mail at pc.committee@mauicounty.us.
