Maui Historic Commission
The Maui Historic Commission last week approved one-half of a request to hang new entry signs at the Front Street entrance to the Lahaina Market Place.
The Commission approved installation of a sign that would read: "Lahaina Market Place. The First Hawaiian Place."
Action on a second sign, intended to be hung above the first, was deferred for study of the suitability of the sign's lettering. The sign would read: "Main Entrance."
Acting Chairman Sam Kaai asked that the Market Place develop a master plan for all signs expected to be installed throughout the shopping area.
In other action, the Commission:
Approved the request of the Lahaina Hongwanji Mission to build a kitchen-dining hall facility on leased property to the rear of Maluuluolele Park.
Gave the Doralen Dress Shop, at 697 Front St., 60 days to come up with a design for a new store sign to replace one installed without the Commission's okay.
Approved the color scheme for exterior painting of the Doralen Dress Shop, and voted to send a letter of reprimand to the shop owner for painting without prior approval.
Deferred action on a request from the Lahaina Deli for approval to hang a sign at the shop in the Kam Chew Young Bldg., pending development of an exterior plan for the entire building.
Approved the request of Horizon West at 758 Front St. to install a window in the second floor front facade and to remodel the shop's entry door.
Approved the request of Paul A. Myers to renovate the first floor of the old Lahaina Casuals building at 858 Front St.
