Bill 10 was introduced for First Reading on February 23, 2022 Agenda on page 15. Relating to use regulations. (Addressing the regulation of uses throughout Chapter 21, Revised Ordinances of Honolulu 1990 (“Land Use Ordinance”).
The proposed amendments are far-reaching. But it’s a very technical piece of document that covers 239 pages. Bill 10 (22) includes the following:
BILL 10 (2022) RELATING TO USE REGULATIONS. PART I. BRIEF SUMMARY BY SUBJECT MATTER
Transfer of development. The agreement running with the land for all donor and receiving zoning lots must remain in effect for a minimum of 60 years (instead of 30 years). Clarifies that for the transfer of development (floor area only) from a donor zoning lot with a historic site to a receiving zoning lot, or for the transfer of development (floor area or number of dwelling units only) from a donor zoning lot within the special management area to a receiving zoning lot, all other requirements and standards applicable to the receiving zoning lot and its underlying zoning district remain in effect.
What is the above proposed LUO amendment about?
Is the longer version below of “Transfer of development” easier to understand for the public?
This Blangiardi Agenda to amend and overhaul Chapter 21 is a sweeping action that contains 239 pages of fine print and technical knowledge. It will become the Bible for Oahu’s Land Use Ordinances for residents, developers and all property owners.
It appears that perhaps the City Council members themselves may not have the opportunity to study the entire document and its multiplier impacts on Oahu and its residents.
On July 18, 2022, the Zoning and Planning Chair Brandon Elefante requested input from other city council members. He even provided the format on how to submit amendments to Bill 10.
Ideally, wouldn’t it be helpful to constituents to hear from their City Council members about this sweeping Bill 10 that will literally affect their lives?
Considering that District 2 has many severe concerns in so many areas, it’s questionable why City Council woman Heidi Tsuneyoshi is only focusing on one little aspect of this Omnibus Bill 10 that relates to the future industrial turbines buffer zone.
Based on the city records, this is what District 2 City Councilwoman Heidi Tsuneyoshi contributed the following amendment to this Monster Bill 10 deliberation.
What about other critical amendments to protect the Oahu General Plan, the North Shore and the Ko;olauloa Sustainable Communities values? What about the agricultural-zoned land and the farmers? Neighborhood Business-zoned parcels? What about food trucks businesses?
