a. Consider Formation of Permitted Interaction Group for Oahu Planning Process Review Implementation Plan
The Oahu Planning Process Review (OPPR) was undertaken by OahuMPO to develop a set of potential improvements to OahuMPO’s planning processes. The resulting Implementation Plan offers a number of possible changes for further evaluation and study. OahuMPO staff is seeking agreement from the Policy Board to allow staff to undertake those evaluations. An intergovernmental review period was recently completed and the resulting comments have been documented by OahuMPO staff. The OPPR documents can be reviewed here: https://www.oahumpo.org/resources/publications-and-reports/oppr-documents/.
Requested Action: Consider the formation of a Permitted Interaction Group to review the intergovernmental comments made about the OPPR and to make a recommendation to the full TAC regarding a recommended course of action for the Policy Board to consider.

A public and intergovernmental review and comment period for the draft ORTP was completed on March 28th.
