Street parking permit program could expand to other Oʻahu neighborhoods


One of Honolulu's biggest complaints has to do with parking in residential neighborhoods. To try to ease the pain, city councilmembers introduced a pilot program in 2017 to create restricted parking zones in three areas in Kalihi.

The program aimed to ensure parking for area residents, support safer streets, and reduce crime by requiring permits for street parking. Councilmember Tyler Dos Santos Tam represents Kalihi and introduced Bill 20 earlier this year, which intends to make the pilot program permanent and expand it. The Conversation spoke with Tam following a community meeting in Kalihi.
