Public workshop to discuss transit-oriented development in Ala Moana

Ala Moana Center

The Department of Planning and Permitting is hosting a community workshop to discuss transit-oriented development around the Ala Moana rail transit station.

The draft plan is the culmination of two prior workshops, at which the community provided input and feedback on their vision for public improvements and amenities in the area surrounding the rail station.

Main focal points include creating a variety of housing types and styles, promoting more street-level restaurants and convenience shops, adding more urban parks and playgrounds, and creating Complete Streets that accommodate motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians.

The workshop, which is free and open to the public, will take place Wednesday, August 27, at 6 p.m. at Washington Middle School cafeteria, 1633 S. King Street.

Workshop discussion and the TOD plan will address several areas, including future land use and development, urban design, parking, pedestrian and bicycle facilities and public infrastructure.

The draft plan can be viewed at McCully-Moiliili Public Library, Ala Moana Satellite City Hall and online here.
