Waipahu Talk Story

On Thursday, April 12th, students in PLAN 751: Planning Practicum and the University of Hawai’i Community Design Center facilitated a community talk story in Waipahu focusing on the rail and transit-oriented development.

Student groups shared their current research on different issues associated with transit-oriented development such as climate change, placemaking, affordable housing, transportation, and community economic development, and learned from community member feedback. The event was free and open to the public with pupus, giveaways, and a co-designing activity. Among the attendees were Leo Asuncion, Director, Office of Planning, representatives from various State agencies, Department of Planning and Permitting, SHADE, and Senator Clarence Nishihara who engaged students in a Q & A session.
