1. AIEA-PEARL CITY NEIGHBORHOOD TRANSIT-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT (TOD) PLAN RAIL TRANSIT STATION AREA ZONE CHANGES
The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) is proposing zone changes in conjunction with a TOD Special District designation around three new rail transit stations to facilitate implementation of the Aiea-Pearl City Neighborhood TOD Plan. The stations are Halaulani (Leeward Community College), Waiawa (Pearl Highlands), and Kalauao (Pearlridge). The proposed zone changes for the three rail transit stations cover approximately 383 acres in total.
In addition, the DPP is proposing the removal of certain Unilateral Agreement conditions related to prior zone changes.
The zone change material is available for viewing at the DPP or online at www.honolulu.gov/tod/neighborhoods/aiea-pearl-city
2. AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTER 21, REVISED ORDINANCES OF HONOLULU 1990, THE LAND USE ORDINANCE (LUO), RELATING TO THE TRANSIT-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT (TOD) SPECIAL DISTRICT (SD)
The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) is proposing to amend the LUO relating to the TOD SD. This proposal will expand the TOD SD by adding the Aiea-Pearl City TOD neighborhood rail station areas. The stations are Halaulani (Leeward Community College), Waiawa (Pearl Highlands), and Kalauao (Pearlridge).
