The Waikiki Livable Community Project (WLCP) is a federally funded study
being conducted by the City and County of Honolulu (Department of Transportation
Services) under a grant obtained from the Federal Highway Administration's
(FHWA) Transportation and Community and System Preservation Pilot Program
The WLCP study is an opportunity to examine and evaluate how Waikiki's
transportation system of public streets, sidewalks, and rights-of-way are used
and, how the system might be improved.
A WLCP Steering Committee composed of members from the community and
representatives from various stakeholder groups met periodically to provide
feedback to the project team. As a result of a "brainstorming session" the
Committee adopted the following Mission Statement for the project as well as future
planning efforts that affect Waikiki.
"Waikiki, is a distinct, premier, residential and urban district. It must maintain
its' Hawaiian sense of place and economic vitality. Seeking solutions and
compromises in physical planning, landscaping, and various modes of
transportation, shall meet the needs of visitors, residents, and employees alike
in the spirit of Aloha."
