Residents from all corners of Oahu urged members of the state Reapportionment Commission to make further changes to proposed political boundary maps and make greater effort to keep communities together.
Others argued that the proposal may be unconstitutional, based on the effect it has on one political faction in the state House.
Community members spoke today at the second of two meetings on Oahu and the Big Island to solicit public input on the proposed plan, which was unveiled last week.
The commission must now take the comments and determine whether any changes need to be made. A final proposal is to be presented Monday with the expectation of adopting it on Wednesday.
