The purpose of this project is to produce an oral history of planning events and activities that have shaped the landscape of development in Hawaii since Statehood in 1959. This history covers major land use laws, planning processes and procedures, and major planning issues and controversies. Documentation was achieved through two-part interviews of seven distinguished planners, including prominent academics, public officials and planning professionals. The project is designed to support the APA Hawaii Chapter’s program of continuing education and professional development of Chapter members, students, and others interested in Hawaii’s planning issues. The project received funding from the American Planning Association and APA Hawaii Chapter.
