Haiku Town Acres - An Update on Maui's New Subdivision

What the Developer Has In Store for Haiku Town Acres

This is a follow up to my previous blog, "New Development In Haiku, Maui, Haiku Town Acres."

Each week I have been looking over the permits and plans on county sites to keep my clients informed on what's happening around them. I read over all 117 pages of the subdivision plan, and this is what I came up with.

Water

Haiku Town Acres will be supplied by a 465ft deep well. The well will be located to the left of the entrance on Auwaha St, across from Kauhikoa. The 300,000-gallon holding tank will be located at the southwest corner of the subdivision at the back of the cul de sac. The well seems to be chlorine treated, which is common practice on Maui.

Electricity

The subdivision will be supplied by underground power. This is good news for neighbors looking to keep their view planes free of power lines. I was also curious to know if there were to be numerous street lights, and it looks like only two (one at each entrance) will be installed. I personally like to keep the light pollution down; Haiku stars are some of the best.

Landscaping

The developer is required to place basic landscaping along the roadways and seed green areas. On the prints, it looks like they will be placing Milo Trees and Bottle Brush Trees along the main streets. The grass variety they chose is St Augustine. Of course, once the lots are purchased, they can be planted which ever way they wish. Ag zoned lots are protected by the Hawaii Right to Farm Act 165; this helps keep the country, country.

According to the University of Hawaii Rain Atlas, this area receives 59.3 inches of rain per year. Due to this, the developers have installed 8 retention basins throughout the neighborhood.

What Land is Currently Available in Haiku?

This project is still in the works, so I have gathered up all of the active land listings over 2 acres in Haiku. Here is the link to all 43 properties. Give me a call or shoot me an email, and we can go into specifics on any of these lots.
