Parks Department Preps for Summer with Tri-Annual Permit Processing

The County of Maui Department of Parks and Recreation is gearing up for the Tri-Annual Permit Process for the summer 2018 season for all leagues and recreational programs.

This process affects application requests for the majority of facility usage countywide. Application requests impacted include those for athletic fields, multipurpose fields, ballfields, courts, pools and gymnasiums.

For the community, this means there will be three windows of time each year during which application requests may be submitted: the first two weeks of January, May and October. It is important to note that this new process will not impact permit application requests for camping, community centers or annual special events.

The Department will accept application requests from 8 a.m. Tuesday, January 2, 2018 until 4 p.m. Friday, January 12, 2018 for the Summer season of April 16 to July 31.

Those wishing to be considered for facility scheduling for the Summer season should apply. Any applications not received in person or via email by 4 p.m. on Friday, January 12, 2018 will not be considered in the tri-annual process. Applicants having missed the application window may submit standard permit applications on a first-come, first-served basis beginning March 5, space-permitting.

Application request packets will be available at all Department permit offices and also on the County of Maui website. Application requests will be reviewed in the priority order outlined in the Department’s administrative rules.

The Department of Parks & Recreation operates and maintains the County’s numerous parks, recreation areas and recreational service programs for the residents of Maui County. A primary objective of the Department is to provide high-quality recreational programs and opportunities for youth, persons with disabilities, senior citizens and adults.

If you are unsure how this will affect your use of County facilities, contact the Department of Parks and Recreation permit office at (808) 270-7389 or email at [email protected]
