The city and its consultants will update the public from 7 to 9 tonight (Sept. 5) on the North Shore Sustainable Communities Plan in the Haleiwa Elementary School cafeteria.

The plan was adopted in 2000 and is up its five-year comprehensive review. This will be the first meeting to discuss the future vision for the North Shore as reflected in the plan. Oahu’s various SCPs provide conceptual, long-range visions and policies to guide decisions on land use and infrastructure.

For the North Shore,planners and residents have focused on the following key elements:

* Establish rural, agriculture and preservation boundaries

* Support diversified agriculture * Enhance recreation and education

* Designate Haleiwa and Waialua as “country towns”

* Retain Waialua Mill as a regional industrial center

* Limit new housing to areas contiguous to Haleiwa and Waialua

* Provide adequate public infrastructure, facilities and services

* Retain cultural and historic resources

* Adapt the ahupuaa concept in land use and natural resource management

For more information,call Corlyn Olson Orr of Helber Hastert and Fee, 545-2055.
