The city Department of Planning and Permitting is holding a community workshop next week to give residents a chance to view and comment on the draft Ala Moana Neighborhood Transit-Oriented Development Plan.

The city drafted the plan after holding two public workshops and conducting several meetings with stakeholders. Next week’s workshop will take place at 6 p.m. on Aug. 27 at the Washington Middle School Cafeteria.

“The Ala Moana area is one of the most vibrant communities along the rail transit corridor, but there are so many opportunities to improve on what we have to make it an even more livable and walkable community,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell in a press release. “The residents there have stepped up to let us know what they want, and it’s time for the City to step up and make this plan a reality.”

The plan still needs to be reviewed by the Honolulu Planning Commission and the City Council before it will become final.
