To solicit community feedback on neighborhood character and growth, the City and County of Honolulu held a series of three public workshops during July/August 2019 corresponding to major regions of the PUC: East (Wai‘alae-Kāhala to Ala Moana), Central (Punchbowl to Kalihi-Pālama), and West (Moanalua to Pearl City). The open houses focused mostly on future land use and development in specific neighborhoods, but also broadly across the entire PUC. Residents learned about proposed land use guidance, voted on preferred options, asked questions of staff, and shared knowledge of local issues.

For those who were unable to attend in person, we have replicated the interactive board exercises online. Please take this short survey to contribute your opinions regarding neighborhood growth and change over time in urban Honolulu.

Your input is important! This survey is a short 10-minute questionnaire, and is part of the public engagement process for the Primary Urban Center Development Plan (PUC DP), last updated in 2004. The PUC DP covers the area from Wai‘ale-Kāhala to Pearl City, mauka to makai, and sets forth the major long-range policies and guidelines related to land use, transportation, and infrastructure investment over a twenty year time horizon. Mahalo!
