“The Aloha-Reedville Study and Livable Community Plan is a three-year effort to engage the entire Aloha-Reedville community to improve the quality of life and address the impact of future growth. Community participation is vital to its success. The study’s goal is to identify strategies to support job growth, business development, affordable housing options and transportation solutions. Although primarily a transportation (including transit access, biking and walking improvements); land use; affordable housing; and economic analysis, the study may serve as a catalyst for future planning efforts and discussion among study area service providers. These and other community aspirations will play a vital role in discussions about where the community wants to go and how to get there.” Aloha-Reedville Citizen Advisory Committee
