Honolulu plans to hold community workshops in downtown and Kalihi this week to ask residents what kind of development they would like to see around commuter rail stations in their neighborhoods.
The city also wants to ask residents how public spaces around their stations could be improved.
Planning and permitting department officials will speak to downtown residents at the Hawaii Community Development Authority on Cooke Street on Monday.
On Tuesday, they will head to Kalihi for a meeting with residents at the Farrington High School library. Both meetings are scheduled for 6 p.m.
Six rail stations are planned for these neighborhoods in downtown, Chinatown, Iwilei, Kapalama, Kalihi and Middle Street.
The city is seeking input on residential and commercial development, industrial and waterfront uses, park enhancements and transportation improvements.
