The plans for Oahu and Maui Nui will be a collaborative effort by members of the respective counties, the visitor industry, other sectors, and the community.
The goal is to create DMAPs that are in alignment with HTA’s four supporting pillars: community, Hawaiian culture, natural resources and branding. According to HTA’s Strategic Plan for 2020-2025

The DMAPs will include actionable items, timelines and measures of success. The writers would attend a series of virtual meetings between August and December 2020, and would compile the suggestions from the public and decisions made by the steering committees to draft the plans.
