Supporting active, healthy lifestyles through human-scaled, rather than automobile-centered, development.
Our current zoning system can make it difficult for residents to engage in active transportation, which is travel via walking, biking and transit. The Built Environment Task Force recognizes that Kauai’s land use system should support active, healthy lifestyles through human-scaled, rather than automobile-centered, development.
This is a critical task given increases in obesity and obesity-related diseases in Hawai‘i. As a task force, we are committed to helping the County make the necessary changes to its planning system in order to support healthy community design.
