City holding ‘pop-ups’ on sea level rise, climate change
News Release from City and County of Honolulu, August 26, 2019
The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) is holding a series of pop-up workshops to gather input on how climate change and sea level rise will affect the area between Kāhala and Pearl City, also known as the Primary Urban Center (PUC).
