Statement by the League of Women Voters of Honolulu at the Public Hearing on the General Plan
Friday, November 29, 1963
The League of Women Voters of Honolulu wholeheartedly supports the concept of a General Plan. The local study item of the League for the past two years has been: "Study and support of a well integrated end comprehensive plan for the City and County of Honolulu, including transportation and zoning." In conjunction with this study the League has done the following:
The League of Women Voters regrets that adequate citizen participation has been prevented. The League received a copy of the plan on November 20th, and immediately began its study, but because of the lack of time we have been unable to study it in depth, or present it to our general membership.
We wish to support the excellent work of Planning Director Frederick Lee, his staff, and the Planning Commission for the well-conceived goals and objectives of the Plan. However, are statements in the plan which we question. For example,
The inclusion of these, and other questionable statements make us feel it is imperative that there be more study and information given to the citizens and makes us wonder whether Planning Director Lee was able to prove his earlier statement that a good General Plan could not be made in so short a time.
The League of Women Voters of Honolulu recommends that this plan be adopted on an interim basis with the provision included that a revised plan, allowing for adequate citizen participation, be completed within a year after adoption.
