we believe neighborhoods should promote healthy lifestyles, inspire, educate, foster innovation, creativity, love, peace and happiness.
Neighborhoods are a reflection of who we are, how we live and what we value as a community. All of us belong to one or more communities and we want everyone to communicate their values, inspire each other and actively participate in developing places that rejuvenate our lives.
Neighborhoods are canvases on which we live our lives. Together, we can paint our neighborhoods to become everything we expect.
Livable Communities Hawaii promotes good city planning in Hawaii through incorporating the community into the planning process. Our projects focus on promoting community involvement in urban planning and public policy.
We provide research, analysis, public education, outreach and advocacy. We serve as a resource for building communities which support a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. We support the evolution of neighborhoods into places where residents can play, study, work, live, and age in-place from cradle to grave. We enhance the quality of life for Hawaii residents by empowering Hawaii’s keiki and kama’aina with knowledge, skills and support so that they may actively participate in creating a neighborhood they love to live in. We aim for all neighborhoods to provide convenience and opportunities for all ages while encouraging healthy lifestyles, innovation, interaction, participation and self-reliance.
