Resident Managerís Monthly Report for January 2002

Aloha from Makena Place.  The new year is bringing us much needed rain and lots of progress.  January has been another busy month at Makena Place, due to the return of residents, the closing of Unit 9, the Duc home, the punchlist work on 7 & 9 and work progressing on Units 1, 2, 4 and 10.

Unit 1 has been stuccoed and is in the process of having the bluestone mounted around the first floor and the drywall sealed.  Unit 2 has nearly completed the framing process. Lot 3 is having the pool pump house constructed and is about to have the pool dug.  Unit 4 has the drywall completed and the painting and tiling should begin this week.  Unit 7 is still in the punch list phase with only minor finishing work being done.  The residents, John and Marilyn Duke have moved in.  Unit 10 has most of the roof tiled and the exterior stuccoed.  If you would like to see photos of the progress visit the web site ( and click on any of the Lot numbers at the top of the home page.

Enclosed please find an official Annual Meeting notice along with the financials and any mail that needs forwarding.  The meeting package will be mailed with next monthís report.  The annual audit is in progress and will be reported on at the meeting.

There have been many inquiries about the proper address for Makena Place.  Since Makena has no Zip Code unto itself we are considered by the post office to be part of Kihei. To avoid confusion you should use the following address:

(Your Name)
4950 Makena Road
<Unit Number> (This is the same as your lot number)
Kihei, HI 96753

There is no need to put Maui in the address.  If you are sending a package you can send it care of me, Doug McBride.  If you are mailing something to the Association, the office unit number is 12.  The Managerís residence is 11.
