OahuMPO’s 2014 Overall Work Program (OWP) provided funding to the Department of Transportation Services (DTS) for Work Element (WE) 203.05‐14 the Complete Streets Implementation Study. The study’s product and outcome was to provide a framework/roadmap for implementation of the Complete Streets ordinance into transportation projects in Honolulu. Work products will include a draft and final report that includes sections on benchmarks, existing conditions, constraints, opportunities for
integration with existing and future projects, potential stand‐alone projects, cost estimates, prioritized list, schedule, and a vision study for one urban corridor. The project deliverables are available at:‐site‐dts‐cat/site‐dts‐te‐cat/21842‐completestreets.html                                                                         Requested Action: Recommend Policy Board approval as evidence that the work was carried out and direct staff to use the study recommendations in the OahuMPO’s planning processes.

OahuMPO’s 2010 and 2012 Overall Work Programs (OWP) provided funding to the Department of Transportation Services (DTS) for Work Element (WE) 203.79‐10/12 the Honolulu Urban Core Parking Master Plan. The last comprehensive parking study for Honolulu was done in 1973. Changes in parking demand, supply, and technology, as well as the impact of future transit plans, needs to be assessed and integrated into a comprehensive parking plan for the urban core. The study’s product and outcome was
to update the 1973 study. The project deliverables are available at:‐studies/honolulu‐urban‐core‐parking‐master‐plan/
Requested Action: Recommend Policy Board approval as evidence that the work was carried out and direct staff to use the study recommendations in the OahuMPO’s planning processes.

The OahuMPO’s Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) has prepared a draft memo requesting that the Policy Board direct staff to amendment the process and procedures documents for the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the Oahu Regional Transportation Plan (ORTP) to require the incorporation of complete streets information in project justification forms.
Requested Action: Provide recommendations to the Policy Board on the action presented in the CAC’s Complete Streets memo.

d. Public Participation Plan Evaluation
OahuMPO maintains a Participation Plan to foster involvement by all interested parties in the transportation planning process. The plan was last evaluated to determine its effectiveness in ensuring a full and open public participation process in 2001. OahuMPO has retained a consultant team led by TLC PR to evaluate the effectiveness of the existing plan. The TLC PR team will brief the CAC on research and findings to‐date, and then solicit input from the TAC members.
Requested Action: No formal action is being requested at this time.
