HAMAKUAPOKO, Hawaii (AP) - Maui officials are looking for ideas on how to repurpose a high school campus that was once home to Congresswoman Patsy Mink, the valedictorian for 1944.
The Maui News reported Friday that Maui County is offering to grant a lease of 20 years or more for $1 per year to those who propose using the campus for social services, agriculture or education.
Anyone submitting a proposal will have to prove they can fund and accomplish their goals.
Director Teena Rasmussen of the Maui County Office of Economic Development says the request for proposal gives a clean slate for new entities to propose a plan for the campus east of Kahului near Maui's north shore.
The school was established in 1913 but its campus was abandoned in 1972.
