HONOLULU – Governor Linda Lingle has appointed former Maui Public Works Director Charles Jencks to serve as an interim commissioner on the state Land Use Commission (LUC).  Jencks will replace Ransom “Randy” Piltz, who resigned on July 2 to run for Maui County Mayor.  Jencks will complete Piltz’s remaining term, which runs through June 30, 2011.

“I appreciate Charlie stepping in to assume this important responsibility in the State’s land-use decision making process,” said Governor Lingle.  “I worked closely with Charlie when I was Mayor of Maui County as well as over the past eight years as Governor. I know first-hand of Charlie’s’ extensive experience in planning and development, his understanding of protecting agricultural and conservation lands, and his sensitivity to the community and Native Hawaiian cultural land practices.  He will be an excellent addition to the Land Use Commission.”

Jencks previously served as director of the Maui County Department of Public Works and Waste Management from 1995 to 2000 and as deputy directory from 1991 to 1995.   

He currently is a partner with Second & Peck Real Estate, LLC, and is also the owner’s representative for Honua‘ula Partners, LLC, which is developing the Honua‘ula project in South Maui.

Jencks previously worked for Bergheer Wailea, which built a resort condominium project in Wailea Resort.  He also worked for the Irvine Company in Newport Beach, Calif., where he managed the design and development of residential communities. 

Jencks is the past board chair of the Maui Chamber of Commerce; past president and board member of the Maui Contractors Association; past board member and president of the Maui Family YMCA; board member and past president of Maui County Council Boy Scouts of America; board member of Seabury Hall School and chair of its Physical Facilities Committee.

He has a bachelor’s degree in urban environmental management from California State University.
