Join us! Zoom In/Zoom Out Sessions on Transportation Solutions for Downtown Hilo

with No Comments

Following May’s successful community wide event, the Downtown Hilo Multimodal Master Plan (DHMMP) technical team has been hard at work developing recommendations based on community input. Solutions under consideration deal with circulation, street design, bicycle facilities, pedestrian improvements, transit, and parking, all of which will ultimately come together to create a comprehensive plan for a more walkable, bikeable, vibrant Downtown Hilo.

We invite the community to roll up their sleeves and join the technical team for three “Zoom In, Zoom Out” working sessions, where we’ll “zoom in” to explore the individual solutions currently on the table and then “zoom out” to examine the overall effects on Downtown. This process is critical to identifying what solutions work best for the people who live and spend time in Downtown Hilo.  Please join us!

Zoom In Zoom Out Sessions are scheduled for:

  • July 20: Circulation and Bicycle Facilities
  • August 14: Transit and Parking
  • August 28: Street Design and Pedestrian Improvements

All sessions are from 2:00-5:00 PM at the Aupuni Center Conference Room, 101 Pauahi Street, Hilo.
