In Memoriam: Delavan Freyer

Delavan Freyer, for eleven years a member of our Planning and Zoning Committee, died June 18.

Starting in 1973 as League observer at City Planning Commission meetings, she worked on the early General Plan revision drafts, co-directed League's 1974 "Kakaako walk", coordinated City Council interviews in 1975 and, later that year, became P & Z Committee chair, a job she held for five years. She was also our representative to the Citizens' Advisory Committee of the Oahu Development Conference.

Del was born in California, was a graduate architect, and practiced in various architectural offices there and in Honolulu where she lived for some thirty years. Her background made her particularly interested in urban design. During League's study, through unit meetings, leading up to our 1976 revised position on planning and zoning, she designed and drew up the charts that initiated our membership into the mysteries of "FAR's" and other zoning technicalities.

She and her husband, Edward, were instrumental in the founding of the Hawaii Association for Retarded Citizens which has four chapters in Hawaii. Del was active in many other community groups and served as chair of the Blind Project at Ho'opono for four years.

She will be missed. Our sympathy goes to husband Edward and sons, Peter and Thomas.
