This presentation showcases the winning design of an experiential learning project for graduate students at UH Manoa's Department of Urban Planning. The class research and design project for the client, Hawai'i's Office of Planning, focused on providing models for the State in balancing community needs with Honolulu's smart growth goals and climate change risk in long-range island planning. The Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) site, Waipahu, was selected for its location as a major bus hub and upcoming station for an in-progress 20-mile rail corridor. Research included: State and community stakeholder interviews; social, physical, and economic flooding vulnerability assessments; and ongoing collaboration with the state's Interagency TOD Council.
