City to host free TOD symposium Saturday, November 22

News Release from City and County of Honolulu November 14, 2014

Mayor Kirk Caldwell, the Department of Planning and Permitting, and the Urban Land Institute-Hawaii will host a free event to update the public on the implementation of the city’s Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Program on Saturday, Nov. 22, at the Neal Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall.

2014 TOD Symposium: Ready to Roll is set for 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Pikake Room. Although the event is free, registration is recommended as space is limited. To register, please see http://bit.ly/1ug4aE1.

“Construction on the rail project is going gangbusters, and so is the implementation of our transit-oriented development plans,” Mayor Kirk Caldwell said. “This is an exciting time as we work together to create affordable housing opportunities for our families and a more liveable, walkable city for everyone to enjoy.”

The symposium will feature local, national, and international experts on TOD, affordable and mixed-use development, and private-public partnerships. Scheduled to speak are:

  • Mayor Kirk Caldwell.
  • Gil Penalosa, executive director of 8-80 Cities. He is an internationally known visionary of what makes a great city – from age-friendly streets to dynamic public spaces.
  • Meea Kang, president, Domus Development, an award-winning developer of mixed-use infill developments. She has extensive experience with public-private partnerships.
  • William Fleissig, president, Communitas Development, a mixed-use developer and former public-sector policymaker. He is a consultant to cities on market-driven strategies to create economically successful communities
  • Cathy Camp, director of development for Kamehameha Schools. She will focus on opportunities and challenges in revitalizing the Kapalama Canal area.
  • Stanford Carr, president, Stanford Carr Development. He is an experienced local developer of ground-breaking affordable and urban infill development

The city has made considerable progress in developing TOD plans, updating codes, identifying priority projects, and refining the regulatory structure to support great TOD communities. Symposium participants will learn about current plans and new ideas for neighborhood design, streets, infrastructure, housing, and financing for TOD.

If you require special assistance, auxiliary aid and/or service to participate in this event (i.e., sign language interpreter, interpreter for language other than English, or wheelchair accessibility), please call 768-8000, or email your request to info@honoluludpp.org at least three business days prior to the event.
