(Tuesday, September, 18, 2012) The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) will hold separate community workshops to present the Downtown and Kalihi neighborhood transit-oriented development (TOD) draft plans.


            The Downtown TOD workshop will be held on Tuesday, September 25, at the Hawaii Community Development Authority, 461 Cooke St. The Kalihi workshop is set for Wednesday, September 26, at the Farrington High School Library Conference Room, 1564 North King St. Both workshops begin at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided.


            Three rail transit stations are planned in the Kalihi (Kapalama, Kalihi and Middle Street) and Downtown (Downtown, Chinatown and Iwilei) neighborhoods and a draft land use and transportation plan has been prepared in anticipation of growth and change around the stations. The public review draft plans are the result of workshops, surveys, and advisory committee meetings with residents, business owners and other stakeholders in each community.


            The upcoming workshops will share the preferred development scenarios for land uses around the six transit stations and include improvement ideas and opportunities relating to residential and commercial development, industrial and waterfront uses, park enhancements, and transportation topics. The public is encouraged to review the draft plans and provide comments.
