Waipahu Rail Development -- Zoning Meeting

WAIPAHU TOD ZONING, LAND USE PLAN TO BE DISCUSSED

News Release from City and County of Honolulu November 6, 2014

The Department of Planning and Permitting will hold a community meeting Nov. 13 on proposed zoning and land use regulation changes in the Waipahu Neighborhood Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Plan Station Area.

The meeting is set for 6:30-8:30 p.m., Nov. 13, in the Waipahu Intermediate School Cafeteria.

The Waipahu TOD Plan was the first to be adopted by the Honolulu City Council in April 2014. Based on the plan’s recommendations, the City is initiating zone changes and a TOD special district around the West Loch and Waipahu Transit Center rail stations.

Among the proposed changes, properties will be zoned for mixed use, and the TOD Special District will require new development standards for site layout and ground-floor building design. Height limits will generally be the same, except for certain areas along key or primary streets where additional heights will be allowed in exchange for community benefits, such as public plazas and affordable housing. In some cases, the new zoning districts will also legalize current uses that do not conform to existing zoning regulations.

Overall, these changes will encourage walking and create active areas by locating housing, jobs, shops and services within close proximity, while improving the pedestrian environment. A final plan will be submitted to the Planning Commission for a public hearing and then to the City Council for additional hearings and action.

For more information about the project, please see http://bit.do/HonoluluTOD-Implementation.

If you require special assistance, auxiliary aid and/or service to participate in this event (i.e., sign language interpreter, interpreter for language other than English, or wheelchair accessibility), please call 768-8000, or email your request to info@honoluludpp.org at least three business days prior to the event.
