Our Neighborhood Advocacy Meetings are hitting town neighborhoods. A Complete Streets proposal for Nuuanu Ave and Liliha St is going before the community. And still time to comment (online) on the Honolulu Urban Core Complete Streets projects.

Oahu Bike Plan Update – Website Live
The City is updating the Oahu Bike Plan. The plan guides the development of our bikeway network and the update will include a prioritized list of projects to build a connected, safe bikeway network all over Oahu. The City launched the plan update website with a survey and cool map to seek comments. So please take a few minutes to drop some comments on the map.
Next Up – Pensacola Protected Bike Lane
The City is working towards Pensacola St as the next protected bike lane. It’ll serve as a crucial connection linking makai towards Ala Moana and mauka into Makiki. A big step in the process is going before the neighborhood boards. Please come out to support!
* Kakaako/Ala Moana Neighborhood Board – 11/28 TUE 7:00pm @ Makiki Christian Church (829 Pensacola St)
* Makiki Neighborhood Board – 12/21 6:30pm @ Makiki District Park (1527 Keeaumoku St)
Neighborhood Advocacy Meetings
We’re meeting in every neighborhood. In coming weeks we’ll be meeting in just about every town neighborhood (full schedule). The objective is to develop a list of neighborhood priorities, making sure these are considered in the bike plan update, and getting people involved from every neighborhood. Get involved in your neighborhood!

The City is considering some big Complete Streets changes to Nuuanu Avenue and Liliha Street. The changes offer the opportunity to create safer streets for biking and walking and make give people in the neighborhood real and safe transportation options.

Honolulu Urban Core Complete Streets – Comment Online Now
As you’ve hopefully already heard from me, the City is in the planning process for big bike improvements on some of Honolulu’s most important thoroughfares – Kapiolani, Ward, King (extension on each end), and many others. It’s the opportunity to transform Honolulu into a truly bicycle friendly city. The City has completed all the public meetings, but is still seeking comments online. Please take a moment to tell them why these streets need to be more bike friendly.
