City Schedules Public Hearings on Amendments to Revised Neighborhood Plan
Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced today that the Neighborhood Commission has scheduled public hearings on proposed amendments to the Revised Neighborhood Plan.
“A lot of time and effort have gone into these recommended improvements to our city’s Neighborhood Plan,” said Joan Manke, Executive Secretary of the Neighborhood Commission Office. “Now we’d like to hear from members of the public before finalizing this important document.”
Public hearings are scheduled as follows:
Saturday, November 3, 10 a.m. to noon
Conference rooms A-C
Saturday, November 3, 2 to 4 p.m.
Windward Community College
Hale Akoakoa Building
Monday, November 5, 6 to 9 p.m.
Mayor’s Conference Room (Third Floor)
The public is invited to attend and submit testimony at the public hearings. Written statements will continue to be accepted at the Neighborhood Commission Office, Room 406, City Hall, until noon December 7, 2007.
The Revised Neighborhood Plan governs the Neighborhood Board system and its 32 regional boards. The boards advise all levels of government on the needs and desires of their respective communities. Board members are elected every two years.
A draft of the amended plan and the public notice are posted on the Neighborhood Commission website at http://www.honolulu.gov/nco/. Copies are also available at the Neighborhood Commission offices at Honolulu Hale, 4th Floor, Room 406, 530 South King Street; and at Kapolei Hale, Room 312, 1000 Ululohia Street.
The Neighborhood Commission is comprised of nine members, of whom four are appointed by the mayor, four by the city council, and the ninth by the mayor and confirmed by the council. The Neighborhood Commission is the custodian of the Neighborhood Plan.
The Neighborhood Commission will consider the public testimony and adopt a Revised Plan in early 2008.
