    Michael T. Munekiyo, AICP, Senior Advisor


    Michael was born and raised in Wailuku. After graduating from Baldwin High School, he attended Colorado State University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. Although he became a licensed civil engineer in the State of Colorado, Michael realized his calling was actually in another area. He embarked upon a new career path in urban planning at the University of Hawai’i where he received his Masters of Urban and Regional Planning degree in 1976.

    The combination of disciplines offered an excellent foundation for the many multi-disciplinary projects Michael has worked on through the years. With more than 45 years of work experience, he is well versed in all aspects of planning, from policy analysis to complex technical and feasibility studies.

    A member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), Michael also serves as a board member of several local non-profit organizations including Hale Makua Health Services (Board of Directors), the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawai’i (Board of Directors) and Wailuku Hongwanji (Board of Directors).

    Michael likes to clear his mind with invigorating “boot camp” fitness workouts.
