PBR HAWAII worked with the Hawai‘i Community Development Authority (HCDA) to prepare an active use facilities master plan and an environmental impact statement (EIS) for HCDA’s Makai Area parks: Kaka‘ako Waterfront Park, Gateway Park, and Kewalo Basin Park. To gather public input on park preferences and proposed improvements, PBR HAWAII, in coordination with HCDA, conducted a robust public engagement program. This included a series of open house events over a nine-month period and an on-line engagement platform to reach people who may not attend public meetings, but nonetheless may want to contribute to the planning process. The master planning process culminated with the preparation and processing of an EIS, thus providing an analysis of any potential impacts and proposed mitigation measures and also offering an additional means of collecting comments on specific plan elements and alternatives.
