The goal of this agenda item is to start a conversation regarding climate change, sea-level rise, and how the participating agencies will address the associated impacts.  One potential goal of this conversation is the development of a policy to be considered by the OahuMPO Policy Board regarding how climate change is to be considered in the prioritization and programming process for Federal surface transportation funds.  Chip Fletcher, Professor of Geology and Geophysics in the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, will provide a brief presentation on the latest sea-level rise modeling and likely areas of impact on Oahu.

Requested Action: No specific action is requested, but the committee may take action if appropriate.

In FY 2012, the OahuMPO Policy Board approved funding for the Department of Emergency Management (DEM) to complete an Emergency Evacuation Plan.  Phase 1 of that plan was recently completed and DEM Director Mel Kaku will present the results of the plan.

Requested Action: Recommend acceptance of the Emergency Evacuation Plan Phase 1 results by the Policy Board.
