Conference to focus on housing solutions
The challenges of providing and finding “attainable housing” for renters and first-time homebuyers will be examined during a two-day conference hosted by Maui County and the Maui Chamber of Commerce.
The Maui Nui Attainable Housing Forum will be held Oct. 15 and 16 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. The first day is free. From 5 to 9 p.m., attendees can learn about the county’s housing crisis, receive information on how to prepare for housing opportunities and first-time home-buying, and view displays of upcoming projects.
The second day will focus on finding ways to get more housing and rental units built. Panels discussions and other activities will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The cost is $60, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch; scholarships are available.
