The Local Agenda Committee (City and County Planning) Reports on the "Green Belt" Act
League members discussed next year's local program at the March units and proposed the following item: "Study and support of a well integrated comprehensive plan for the City and County of Honolulu including good transportation and zoning".
In the March Aloha Voter we reported on the importance of Act 187 (the Green Belt Act) to good planning.* We asked the National League for permission to support this act in the State Legislature. We feel that this act is not only important to Hawaii, but that it could become model legislation for the U.S. wherever urban sprawl and conservation of natural resources present a problem.
Mrs. Zurbach answered us, that since Act 187 is a state legislation which pertains to the entire state of Hawaii and not just to Oahu, she feels we have no authority for League action. She recommended that we prepare a fact sheet for our members with information on the act and encourage you to write to our legislators individually in support of Act 187.

*-The March bulletin should have stated that under Act 187 the state will set up the three major districts: urban, agricultural, and conservation. Lands will be zoned and taxed according to their best use. Councils will zone within urban areas,
while the state will zone within the other two districts.
