Upcoming Events in the Community

Sep. 20-22: 2017 Hawaii Congress of Planning Officials Conference

Register Online! The City & County of Honolulu Department of Planning & Permitting invites you to the 2017 Hawaii Congress of Planning Officials Conference, September 20 – 22, 2017 at the Alohilani Resort Waikiki.

Hawaii is home to the most isolated metropolis in the world, Honolulu, and, just like any other community, we depend on our neighbors, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and Hawaii for social, economic, and cultural support. Isolation, and the conditions associated with it, breeds a unique set of circumstances across our island chain. Public, private, nonprofit, activist, neighbor island and volunteer groups must continue to work together. Developing stronger partnerships with our neighbors is paramount to the success of the Hawaiian Islands.
