Highways are the Issue!(take to the unit meeting)
What is the League's transportation position? Should it be updated? Can the League speak out? What can we say about highways and public transportation issues?
Following is the LWVUS position on transportation. How can we apply it in Honolulu?
The Hawaii State Plan, passed in 1978, set goals which include those to halt urban sprawl, preserve and conserve open space, enhance and protect the environment, and uplift the quality of life. Guidelines relating to transportation include:
The State Plan is intended to interlace with the Counties' general plans.
Oahu's General Plan, adopted in 1977, and the pending Development Plans are guidelines for shaping the island's growth. Population increases are to first occur in the Primary Urban Core (PUC). Then the Ewa area will begin to absorb the population and its housing needs. Central Oahu is the third area designated for expanded growth. Transportation facilities -- roads, bus service, and other systems -- will be needed to serve the home-to-work needs as these areas increase their population.
Honolulu League's position on transportation has stressed the public transit aspect, but the following are some of our highway related statements:
Following are several statements which will be part of unit discussions. What is your reaction to them? Think of them in terms of League's positions and how they mesh with state and county plans.
Come and share your reactions. It's been a few years since we've talked about highways, and the Transportation Committee hopes to not only provide information and answer questions but also get a sense of how members may feel about specific highway issues. This will also guide us in applying our position.
