III. MEETING CATEGORIES -- OPEN OR CLOSED.

Other categories: Planning.

The Sunshine Law expressly applies to the Land Use Commission; its meetings must be open to the public. Haw. Rev. Stat. § 92-6(b).

Maui Corporation Counsel held that an "informational meeting" between the Planning and Land Use Committee of the Maui County Council and members of the Kihei-Makena Citizens Advisory Committee did not violate the Sunshine Law. Because it was not the Land Use Commission, the rules of the council, not Section 92-6(b), governed its conduct. Maui Corp. Counsel Op. (Sept. 27, 1985).
