The Client manages over a dozen retail shops and a café along Front Street in historic Lahaina Town. A collection of their buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, triggering regulatory review of signs, advertising and architectural elements of each store. We assisted in bringing the collection of retail establishments into compliance, including assisting with 14 sign permits, remedies for violations of unauthorized work performed, and compliance with wastewater treatment requirements for several shops and the café.
The collection of stores are within the special flood hazard zone, shoreline setback area, involves State-leased lands and is within the Special Management Area of Maui County. Multiple, overlapping jurisdictions and conflicting rules and regulations created a challenging, but manageable, regulatory environment. However, the end result was a more consistent, coordinated and appropriate visual marketing experience for tourists and visitors to this block of historic retail establishments.
