A Final Environmental Assessment has been accepted for the planned Heritage Hall in Paia. The multi-purpose cultural and community office complex is being planned in partnership between the Maui Puerto Rican Association and the Portuguese Association of Maui.

Plans call for construction on less than an acre of land located next to the old Paia Mill. The project consists of two separate structures housing a social hall, kitchen, cultural resource center, and related amenities. The applicant proposes that the cultural resource centers share a common lobby with separate display cases, offices, and classrooms. The total square footage of the structures is 5,596 sq. ft., with 1,025 sq. ft. to be used for lease to a public or non-profit organization.

The Maui Planning Commission accepted the Final EA and issued a finding of no significant impact for the project.
