TOD Districts Approved in Honolulu

Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann has signed a law that allows for the creation of transit oriented districts around the city's recently approved regional train system.

"Hannemann, who has favored developing a rail system from Kapolei to Ala Moana, said the transit bill will allow greater flexibility in planning a 'vibrant transportation system that will help all of us.'"

"The transit bill establishes 'Transit-Oriented Development Zones' around rail transit stations that would allow for more efficient land use by a number of means, including the elimination or reduction of minimum off-street parking requirements and allowing of higher urban densities."
