A REQUEST FOR AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTER 21, REVISED ORDINANCES OF HONOLULU 1990, AS AMENDED (“THE LAND USE ORDINANCE”), RELATING TO MISCELLANEOUS “HOUSEKEEPING” MEASURES
The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) is proposing to revise Bill 79 (2015), relating to miscellaneous “housekeeping” measures. In a memo dated October 2, 2015, DPP submitted to the Planning Commission for consideration and appropriate action, a request to amend Chapter 21, Revised Ordinances of Honolulu. This is an additional adjustment, which is a minor change to Land Use Ordinance (LUO) Section 21-2.140-1, Specific Circumstance. DPP overlooked this situation in the original proposal and now wants to include language in the LUO that would address another situation when an ohana dwelling unit is nonconforming but the current regulations will not allow it to be rebuilt or expanded.
Section 21-2.140-1(i)(1) is amended by adding subsection (D), to read as follows:
(D) The ohana dwelling was legally established but is no longer allowed pursuant to Sections 21-8.20(c)(2) and (3).
Information regarding this public hearing can be obtained by contacting the Planning Commission, 7th Floor, Frank F. Fasi Municipal Building, 650 South King Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, telephone 768-8007.

Attendance at the public hearing is not necessary to submit written testimony.
