Mayor James Apana said the homeless population living at the site has created unsanitary conditions, and the state Health Department has recommended closing the park for two months. The county plans to level the campground area, clean the restrooms and repair facilities. Apana said the area will be sanitized and certified by the state as being free from health risks before the grounds are reopened. People camping at the park are being notified about the closure this week and offered information about social services. But a tight housing market threatens to make Maui's homeless problem worse. Apana said the proposed $3.5 million West Maui Homeless Center in Lahaina should help some. Apana also is talking with the Kahului Salvation Army about opening a center to provide temporary food and shelter for the homeless in Central Maui.
