City holding ‘pop-ups’ on sea level rise, climate change

News Release from City and County of Honolulu, August 26, 2019

The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) is holding a series of pop-up workshops to gather input on how climate change and sea level rise will affect the area between Kāhala and Pearl City, also known as the Primary Urban Center (PUC).

Information gathered at the pop-ups will help the DPP as it updates the PUC Development Plan (DP). The PUC DP guides the projected long-term growth, development and public investments for the area from Kāhala to Pearl City. It is one of eight regional plans for O‘ahu and covers the most populous and urban area of the island.

The pop-ups will provide updates on the conditions and forecasts for the PUC, and the public is encouraged to offer comments on strategies to address climate change and sea level rise.

Here’s a schedule of the upcoming pop-ups:

Tuesday, Aug. 27, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., University of Hawaiʻi, Campus Center
