DPP seeks comments on Primary Urban Center plan ‘sneak preview’
News Release from City and County of Honolulu, Dec 30, 2020
The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) is seeking comment on a preview document of the Primary Urban Center Development Plan (PUC DP) update. The “PUC DP All Policies Summary” is a complete collection of the draft goals and policies that will make up the final PUC DP.
Because this update introduces a new format for the PUC DP, community members are invited to a “sneak peek” of the draft policies in anticipation of the full Public Review Draft release in early 2021. The plan’s themes (11 in all) each represent a chapter of the Plan. A copy of the preview is available at https://bit.ly/3nZhBI1.
The PUC DP update kicked off in late 2017, including stakeholder interviews, interagency coordination, several rounds of community evening workshops, “pop-up” workshops, surveys, and other engagement. Important themes include land use and transportation planning, infrastructure, parks and open space, public services, economic development, resource conservation, and planning for sea level rise.
The Primary Urban Center stretches from Wai‘alae-Kāhala to Pearl City, extending along a portion of the southern coastline to the top of the mountain watersheds. The PUC is home to about 440,000 residents and makes up a large portion of O‘ahu’s population and highly urbanized areas. The PUC DP guides development for projected growth and is a key planning document that informs zoning, infrastructure investments, and other City codes and standards.
