HALA Community Focus Groups


Community Focus Groups met for nearly one year to help craft the Principles that are now guiding how we apply MHA. Maps of proposed zoning changes are available online and at in-person meetings. Have a look below for links to more information. Please check the calendar often for other opportunities to engage and share your ideas.

Draft MHA Zoning Maps

See the draft zoning changes to put MHA into effect at our online conversation platform, HALA.Consider.it.  You'll also find a short video explaining how to read and understand the maps.

We want your input! This first draft is intended to solicit feedback and ideas for improving the zoning changes that will implement MHA affordable housing requirements.
