Sir:

 

Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred H.B. No. 1507 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CROSSWALKS,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to establish within the Department of Transportation a Community Crosswalks Pilot Program, which shall design and implement a specially painted crosswalk within the Waipahu school complex area that represents the neighborhood's unique culture and promote pedestrian safety.

 

The Department of Transportation Services of the City and County of Honolulu, Kaleiopuu Elementary School, and Hoomana Pono, LLC. supported this measure. The Department of Transportation opposed this measure. A concerned individual provided comments.

 

Your Committee has amended this measure by requiring the Department of Transportation to design and implement the Community Crosswalks Pilot Program in collaboration with the appropriate county departments and agencies, to be determined by the Director of Transportation.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1507, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1507, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.

 

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
