An initial proposal was circulated in January-February 2020 and public testimony was received at three public meetings held on March 3 at Kapolei Hale, March 5 at Kailua District Park, and March 10 at Mission Memorial Hearing Room on the grounds of Honolulu Hale.
Decision-making was initially continued to March 17 and then April 6, but both of those meetings were cancelled due to the COVID -19 epidemic given the Mayor’s Emergency Proclamation COVID-19 [Novel Coronavirus] issued on March 4, 2020 and Supplementary Proclamations.

May 12, 2020 from 2:30-4:30 PM. The meeting has been moved from the Mission Memorial Hearing Room to the Mission Memorial Auditorium in order to allow for recommended social distancing.
