Honolulu developed its action plan in collaboration with Honolulu's Age-Friendly City Initiative, and the local Citizen Advisory Committee. Honolulu's action plan focuses on improving the natural environment to encourage people of all ages to enjoy the city's natural beauty. The plan includes policies to advocate for better sidewalks, improve walkability, develop truly affordable housing, create accessible transit, and guarantee greater access to healthcare.
Action Plan Highlights
Outdoor SpacesImprove outdoor pedestrian and public spaces by making them more inclusive, walkable and attractive through increased greenery, new dementia-friendly features, and multigenerational fitness and play areas.
HousingIncrease housing stock and density by supporting ADUs and naturally occurring retirement communities, building more micro-units and workforce housing, providing low- or no-interest loans, and ensuring that new development is disaster resilient.
TransportationIncrease bicycle safety through infrastructure improvements in high crash areas, improved signage, and public education.
