Councilmember Carol Fukunaga has submitted an amendment to the City Department of Planning and Permitting’s Transit Oriented Development (TOD) plan for Halawa, incorporating the ‘Aiea Sugar Mill property into the TOD zone.

The goal of this amendment is not to have more density, but to provide a buffer zone between the impending Aloha Stadium development and ‘Aiea’s residential areas. The amendment would also allow the sugar mill site to be included in any community benefit that transit oriented development will bring.

The ACA will continue to work with the Department of Planning and Permitting ont he Primary Urban Center plans/designations to ensure development consistent with the community’s needs and desires.

Mahalo to Councilmember Carol Fukunaga for her leadership on this issue.
