Since 2005, Kula Ridge LLC has been working diligently towards creating their master planned community known as “Kula Ridge” to benefit our island families.  In October 2010, Kula Ridge received approval from the Maui County Council for a change in zoning through the State of Hawaii’s 201-H approval process, which allows for certain exemptions from zoning requirements for projects that provide a minimum of 51% affordable housing.  On January 6, 2012, Kula Ridge was approved by the State Land Use Commission for a District Boundary Amendment.

Currently, Kula Ridge is accepting applications for the project’s affordable homes and market priced lots.

Kula Ridge is an important project for Maui.  It will provide needed affordable and senior affordable housing for our local workforce and seniors, it will provide needed jobs for our local construction industry, and will reflect the character of upcountry Maui.

Mahalo to the hundreds of residents who have supported this project through the years. Thanks to your efforts we are now able to make Kula Ridge a reality.

  • Kula Ridge is located mauka (mountainside) of Holy Ghost Church and the Kula Community Center and overlooks spectacular panoramic views.
  • There are 116 homes planned for the 48 acre parcel.
  • The upper 16 acres of the property are planned with four 4-acre agricultural lots, as a buffer to the surrounding agricultural areas.
