was held on where nursing portables should be placed.† Options discussed were the rear parking lot
(temporarily until we can grade another location), parking area next to the nursing building (area considered flood zone), or area below
Kupa`a.† These portables will probably
become permanent structures and would not be ideally sited where it could
interrupt the architecture.† Consultants
are waiting for a decision; preference expressed for area next to nursing.† Safety, lighting,
aesthetics are being considered in making a decision.† Karen recommended looking at the possibility
of having a facility next to the hospital.† Clyde
will discuss with Nancy and Wes Lo of MauiMedicalMemorialCenter.†

development.† A group of faculty and
staff members who will assume responsibility of moving the four-year agenda
ahead will be put together.† We can
