City to hold transit development workshop for Halawa, Aloha Stadium

The city’s Department of Planning and Permitting will hold the first of several community workshops for residents and businesses to create the Halawa Area Transit-Oriented Development Plan.

The workshop is set for Tuesday, March 17, at the Aloha Stadium Hospitality Room, from 6-8 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided.

The Halawa Area TOD Plan will focus on the areas around the rail station planned near Aloha Stadium.

The surrounding neighborhood embodies a broad mix of institutional, commercial, military and residential uses. As the site of professional, collegiate and high school sporting events, as well as cultural offerings, Aloha Stadium is a major draw and attraction. Juxtaposed with high volumes of visitors attracted to the nearby USS Arizona Memorial, a new rail station can be a catalyst for creating a more vibrant destination for residents and visitors to enjoy, while relieving the traffic congestion that occurs during high volume events.

Planning for the area will address land use, circulation, infrastructure and community character and provide a guide for future public and private investment in the neighborhood.

Citizen participation is vital to a successful TOD plan, and the DPP is seeking a diverse set of community members to share their ideas and priorities, as well as concerns.

The Halawa Area TOD Plan is one of eight neighborhood plans being developed by the DPP for 19 stations along the city’s 20-mile rail transit line that will lay out the foundation for improvements in the area.
