Spotlight on Ala Moana Master Plan

The public is invited to the final meeting to discuss the Master Plan for Ala Moana Regional Park, scheduled for Monday, January 29, 2018, 6 p.m., at the McCoy Pavilion Auditorium, the City and County of Honolulu said in its latest release. 

This meeting includes a presentation of the Master Plan that was drafted following public forums in March 2015 and April 2016.

During those forums, the public shared their vision of the park’s future and how they would like to see the park improved, all while maintaining the park’s current character.

“The community has embraced the need to update what President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called ‘The People’s Park’ when it was dedicated back in 1934,” said Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell. “I’m pleased this process has generated so many exciting ideas to restore, revitalize and enhance this 119-acre jewel in the heart of urban Honolulu.” 

According to the official announcement, the purpose of the EISPN for the Master Plan is to outline a variety of short and long-term projects and park improvements to restore, revitalize, and enhance Ala Moana Regional Park, including ʻĀina Moana (Magic Island).

Some of those include:

  • Sand replenishment and long-term beach nourishment;
  • Improving the park road crossing to the canoe launch ramp near the Ala Wai Boat Harbor;
  • Expansion of promenades along Ala Moana Park Drive and the Ala Wai Boat Harbor, etc.
