The following information is provided by Hawaii State Senate:
Honolulu-Senate Bill (SB) 2341, Relating to Land Use, became law yesterday without the Governor's signature. The measure allows agricultural tourism activities, including certain overnight accommodations of twenty-one days or less, in agricultural districts for any one stay within Maui County.
The intent of the SB 2341 is to enable Maui County to make their own determinations regarding the allowance of certain activities on, or uses of, land in agricultural districts. To assist in this effort the measure provides that the county adopt ordinances setting forth procedures and requirements for the review and permitting of agricultural tourism uses and activities.
"The enactment of Senate Bill 2341 provides a wealth of opportunity for Maui County farmers and ranchers as well as the greater community," said Senator English, who introduced the measure.
