The State of Hawaii Department of Transportation is initiating the Waimea Regional Safety Study and is conducting environmental review as part of a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) process. PEL represents a collaborative and integrated approach to transportation planning that involves the community to inform the decision-making process as it relates to the environment, economy, and community. As community members, you intimately know the transportation issues and challenges in and around Waimea Town. We invite you to become a part of the planning process and attend our first community meeting for the project to provide input regarding perceived problems related to transportation in, through, and around Waimea Town. The meeting will be an open house format with an opportunity to meet with agency representatives and the consultant team, as well as an opportunity to provide interactive feedback.
