HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) will host a third community workshop on Wednesday, April 26, to present the Public Review Draft of the Airport Area Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Plan. The draft plan is the result of input gathered at community workshops, stakeholder meetings, public comments submitted to the DPP, and a survey of area residents, employers and employees. The plan addresses new development, pedestrian and traffic improvements, and public spaces around the future Pearl Harbor, Honolulu International Airport, and Lagoon Drive rail stations. This neighborhood embodies a broad mix of industrial, commercial, military, and residential uses, and it serves as the gateway to the island for arriving air travelers. 

The Airport Area TOD Draft Plan recommendations include: New mixed-use communities on underutilized lands near the Makalapa Gate, new bicycle lanes and improved access to Ke‘ehi Lagoon, preservation of high-demand industrial zoning, and convenience retail near the rail station.

The DPP encourages businesses, landowners, and residents to provide comments on the Public Review Draft. A final plan is expected to be completed later this year and will be submitted to the Planning Commission, which will make a recommendation to the City Council for action.

If you require special assistance, auxiliary aid and/or service to participate in this event (i.e., sign language interpreter, interpreter for language other than English, or wheelchair accessibility), please call 768-8000, or email your request to at least three business days prior to the event.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Aliamanu Middle School Cafeteria, 3271 Salt Lake Boulevard. Light refreshments will be provided.
