Nuuanu Community Park Site Selection Study
Location: Honolulu, Hawaii
Client: Department of Design and Construction, City and County of Honolulu
Helber Hastert & Fee, Planners (HHF) prepared a Site Selection Analysis for three candidate sites and a conceptual Master Plan for the preferred candidate site for a community park in Nuuanu Valley, Honolulu, Hawaii.
The inspiration for the Park grew out of discussions by the Nuuanu/Alewa Community Vision Group (CVG). The CVG envisioned the park to be a recreational facility that provides neighborhood, community and regional support for residents that live in the Nuuanu/Alewa area. The Site Selection Analysis study process included the following tasks:
- Determined the Department of Parks and Recreation requirements for a community and/or district park.
- Met CVG to discuss their vision and goals and to determine the need for a park.
- Selected three candidate sites.
- Collected and researched background and existing land use data on the three candidate sites.
- Prepared maps of the three candidate sites based on analysis of background data.
- Reviewed applicable reports, plans and/or regulations that may affect development of the three candidate sites.
- Recommended the preferred site for a community/district park.
The study process for the conceptual Master Plan included these tasks:
- Prepared and developed for City and CVG approval, three draft conceptual master plan alternatives for the preferred site.
- Prepared a final master plan for the preferred site.
