Waikiki plan to be discussed

The city Department of Transportation Services will hold an open house and a public workshop this week to discuss the Waikiki Livable Community Project.

The open house, from 4 to 6 p.m. today, will focus on an overview of the project.

The workshop, from 2 to 8 p.m. tomorrow, will concentrate on details of the plan.

Both sessions will be at the Waikiki Marriott Resort, 2552 Kalakaua Ave.

The Livable Communities Plan for Waikiki grew out of meetings and focus groups held last year. In the project, which is supported by a $700,000 federal grant, residents were asked to give opinions on a range of transportation issues: shuttle bus operations, bicycle and pedestrian uses, access for the disabled, tour buses and delivery trucks, loading zones and refuse collection.

For more information, call Tracy Fukuda at 946-2277.

The executive director of the Hawai'i International Film Festival will speak at the annual meeting of The Friends of Kailua Library and present a film at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Kailua library.

The public is welcome. Refreshments will be served.

Call the library at 266-9911.
