Public Invited to Comment on Ala Moana TOD Plan

The Planning Commission of the City and County of Honolulu will hold a public hearing Wed., July 20, at 1:30 p.m. at the Mission Memorial Building to discuss adopting a community-based plan that focuses on the area surrounding the planned Ala Moana Center rail transit station. The Ala Moana district’s proposed station is part of a 21-stop rail system serving all of Honolulu. 

The station will serve as the eastern (Diamond Head) terminus of Phase 1, and is due to be completed in 2020. The Ala Moana district is one of the most urban and complex neighborhoods along the rail corridor. Its needs and opportunities are unique and particular to this place and its people. The Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Plan responds to comments from the Ala Moana community and their vision for the future. The plan is intended to serve as a guide for future public improvements and private investment. 

Public testimony will be taken at the hearing.  Fifteen (15) copies of written testimony should be filed with the Planning Commission at least forty-eight (48) hours before the date of the public hearing.  Attendance at the public hearing is not necessary to submit written testimony.  One copy may be faxed (768-6743) or mailed (Planning Commission, 650 South King Street, 7th Floor, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813).  All interested persons are invited to attend.  Those persons desiring to testify may register prior to the public hearing at the public hearing site. The plan is available for viewing at the Department of Planning and Permitting or online at
