Islander thinking for the future

I have to hand it to the mayor of Honolulu. Mufi Hanneman's state-of-the-city address sets out a transportation plan that could be a model for many here on the mainland. A key passage:
We will be updating the Honolulu Bikeway Master Plan in Fiscal Year 2008. The existing plan is confined to the area from Pearl City to Kahala. We'll be working with the Hawaii Bicycling League to evaluate the bicycling potential of the entire island, look at existing routes, and begin planning for the incorporation of bicycling and walking as part of our rail stations and transit centers. I've charged the Department of Transportation Services with targeting more bike paths to and from the University of Hawaii's Manoa campus.
You can read the whole speech here and learn more about the mayor at this link.
