@kai, answer for yourself please
Nancy Halley

It could be better. Youth need to be invited and represent. They are growing into this new “corridor”.

Wailuku and Kahului have a rich history that should be shared and visible in a "location" similar to how Bailey House has collected and displayed photos. Places like the old Kahului Railroad Rock Crushing site should be preserved and are part of the rich history of the area-maybe not directly in the corridor.

It can’t be active, safe and healthy unless it’s environmentally sound :^0

Do not condense & clutter like Honolulu
Nancy Halley
01:39:04
We have the ocean and mountains.
Christina Goodness
01:39:09
Can we ask questions?
Kai Nishiki
01:41:03
will converting use of malls to senior/affordable housing being addressed during this process? our malls are prime areas to increase density for truly affordable housing
Christina Goodness
01:42:58
If Jeff Speck could share more about how a city's Operating Expense Ratio is calculated, that would be super helpful. Thinking about all the sprawl by Ho'okele while Kaahumanu SC goes vacant and downtown Wailuku is being considered declared a blight zone
Kai Nishiki
01:43:07
even though wastewater is not on Kaahumanu Ave it is near and should be sited off the shoreline
Jennifer Wieland, Nelson\Nygaard
01:43:39
Keep the questions coming! We'll ask a few of Jeff as he wraps up the slides, and then we can discuss more in small groups.
Christina Goodness
01:45:58
Will the original assumptions that led to Kanaloa and Wahinepio being too big be challenged and re-considered?
Nancy Halley
01:46:46
It would be nice if the cars are in the back and that’s not what we are looking at.
Christina Goodness
01:47:24
How does the planning for this Kaahumanu Ave zone fit against County reconsiderations of post-pandemic growth and tourism?
Christina Goodness
01:48:55
Or, to put it another way, how have the pandemic lessons affected this design process?
Christina Goodness
01:55:40
This is excellent analysis. Mr. Speck should consider doing analysis of the road to Hana to advise on the maximum traffic per hour/day before we all go nuts
Lauren Nelson
01:58:32
I think it is beautiful :) I love that street
Nancy Halley
01:59:51
The chio pet design could be good for the wailuku parking structure…and be edible.

Jeff Speck: What are your thoughts on Form-based Code?

Love the ideas that ultimately bring more walkers and bikers into the area. Planning should also involve how would you get these non drivers out of the area quickly in the event of a natural or manmade disaster. The corridor is at sea level.
Nancy Halley
02:32:54
Any partnering with the Feds re: the development of Kahului Harbor like Aloha Tower area on Oahu?

The last question asked was "what would be the worst thing that could happen?" To answer more fully: the worst would be to accept the status quo. The status quo has cut Pu'uone in half and created very dangerous situations for kids, families and the disabled for the benefit of cars being funneled through major corridors. I fear for my bicycling teenager every day. The best thing to happen would be to prioritize walking routes, multi-use growth, and community interaction via foot, bicycle and wheelchair.

Perhaps Central could be made one way, opposite of Market, put in sidewalks and Parkin on one side of the street
Christina Goodness
02:51:31
Another best outcome would be to establish a successful design concept and principles of walkable town that can be extended to the Lahaina area, and future Paia area which are now or will experience radical growth. Some street could even be shut down altogether. It works for very old cities without adverse commercial impact. Thank you again for the opportunity to contribute! Excellent initiative that is long overdue and gratefully received by the 40 generation Goodness family which has lived in Pu'uone for 60+ years and in Wailuku area for hundreds of years before that. Mahalo!
