Boaters should back improved Maalaea plan The plan to improve Maalaea Harbor (Maui) has been in the works since 1968. The entrance to the harbor needs to be modified to correct navigational safety hazards, plus the growth of population and boats on Maui requires that small boat harbor capacities be increased. Why has this vital maritime project been stuck at "square one'' for 30 years? Funding limitations have delayed it in the past, but the main reason now is opposition from environmental groups and surfers. Environmentalists say the project would destroy 4.8 acres of coral and alter seven acres of marine habitat. Surfers object because one of five surf spots adjacent to the harbor would be eliminated. The lastest environmental impact statement supplement adequately addresses the concerns of the environmental and surf groups. The redesign of the harbor entrance meets navigational safety standards and at the same time positions the breakwater so as to have minimum effect on the coral and ocean habitats and preserves four of the five surf spots. A compromise such as this is difficult at best, but it has been accomplished and is presented as preferred Alternative No. 1 in the new EIS. Small boaters should support this improvement at a public hearing tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Kihei Elementary School.
