SHADE Preliminary Proposal for Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse

Tuesday, July 19, the interns presented the preliminary designs for the Waipio Point Access Road in front of the Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse members.  During this time, the interns discussed two potential proposals for the pathway leading to the clubhouse, one on each side of the street.  There were many pros and cons brought up by the clubhouse members and patrons, which allowed for a greater discussion on improving the proposed concept plans.  The next phase of the project will be to merge and distinguish potential areas for the secondary concept plan.

Thank you to Ryan Char, Kathleen Merriam and the Clubhouse members for giving us their time and effort in this on-going process.
