City to host Complete Streets Public Information Meeting

 

Honolulu – The City & County of Honolulu Department of Transportation Services (DTS) will hold a Complete Streets Public Information Meeting tonight, Tuesday, July 15, 2014, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Neal Blaisdell Center, Pikake Room. 

 

Complete Streets are streets that are safe and accessible for everyone, regardless of age, ability, or mode of transportation.  They allow pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and public transportation to share the road and get around efficiently and conveniently. 

 

The meeting is being held to highlight the work being done by the City and County of Honolulu to make our streets safer, more convenient and more accessible for all users, including motorists, transit riders, pedestrians and bicyclists.

 

DTS will conduct the meeting to review Honolulu’s Complete Streets Ordinance, introduce the community to complete streets concepts, review existing complete streets projects, discuss a proposed complete streets’ manual for the City and County of Honolulu and respond to questions and comments from the community. 

 

Dan Burden, Co-Founder and Director of the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute, will be present as part of the SSFM International team to assist DTS with Honolulu’s complete streets policies.

 

“This is a great opportunity for the public to learn more about Complete Streets and the exciting opportunities ahead to create more livable communities on Oahu,” said Mike Formby, Director, DTS.
