Mayor Alan Arakawa answers some of the most-asked questions submitted to his office staff.

Aloha e Mayor Arakawa,

Q: I would like to know if there can be more facilities at the Pukalani Park. Our children, youth and teens do not have much to do, and it would be wonderful to have a skate park incorporated in the park. As it is now the kids ride on the roads, which is so dangerous.

A: I’m pleased to report that design drawings have already begun for skate park facilities Upcountry, and on Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi. The Upcountry location will be determined with input from the community meetings that the Maui County Parks Department will be holding on each island.

For all the details on the community meetings and skatepark locations on Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi, go online and click on the “News Center” tab to view the press release.
