A REQUEST FOR AMENDMENT TO CHAPTER 21, REVISED ORDINANCES OF 1990, AS AMENDED (THE LAND USE ORDINANCE), RELATING TO OFF-STREET PARKING AND LOADING
The Department of Planning and Permitting (“DPP”) is proposing a Bill to revise Chapter 21 of the Revised Ordinances of Honolulu 1990, as amended (“ROH”), also known as the Land Use Ordinance (“LUO”). Specifically, the proposed Bill repeals Article 6 of the LUO (Off-street Parking and Loading) and replaces it with a version that introduces new text and significantly reorganizes existing text so that provisions related to off-street parking and loading are all in one place (i.e., Article 6). The proposed Bill also proposed changes to Articles 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, and 10, to eliminate duplication and language that conflicts with the edits proposed in Article 6.
The primary purpose of the proposed Bill is to update the aspects of the LUO pertaining to off-street parking and loading to enhance consistency with the plans, policies, and other ordinances of the City and County of Honolulu (“City”).
Among other things, the proposed amendments address future parking needs; promote better design; encourage the use of alternative transportation means such as bicycle, mass transit, car sharing, ride hailing, and walking; implement the goals of “vision zero” (strategy to eliminate traffic fatalities and severe injuries); increase future rail ridership; and, allow for the development of a diversified and sustainable transportation network that is less reliant on single- occupancy vehicles.
