The Honolulu Charter Commission takes public suggestions to improve the city

The Honolulu Charter Commission is tasked with studying core operations of the city government. Every ten years, it takes public suggestions to improve the city.

The goal of the Charter Commission is to help improve City operations by reviewing the Charter and proposing amendments to the Charter. The proposed amendments will be placed on the 2016 general election ballot.

This opportunity comes around every 10 years, and can really make a difference. The 2005-2006 Charter Commission proposed several amendments; for instance, an amendment to make Honolulu a pedestrian and bicycle-friendly city.

Seventy two percent of voters favored this and it’s something that has come to life. You have until October 31 to submit your ideas. More at http://honoluluchartercommission.org.
