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.

OahuMPO staff is seeking agreement from the Policy Board to allow staff to undertake those evaluations.
