Yuen on The Concept of Creating a Commercial Core: Kona 1 Rest of the Island ??

I don’t know how I missed this earlier today:

…On a community level, Silbanuz said the Health Department is working with county planning departments, developers and others to create new neighborhoods and retrofit older ones with “complete streets” that can accommodate cars, bicyclists, pedestrians and the disabled.

The Healthy Hawai’i Initiative arranged for an expert in “walkable communities” to conduct workshops with Hawai’i County’s planning and public works departments to take a closer look at community design that engineers physical activity back into residents’ lives…

…The concept of creating a commercial core and other features to make it easier for residents to walk around in their communities probably won’t work in the county’s rural, low-density subdivisions, but Yuen said it’s being encouraged for new development in Kona….

Anyone want to try and make something out of this?

Here we are in Puna, one of the fastest growing communities in the State, PROVEN, and yet Yuen believes Kona should have it… yet it won’t work in the other parts of the island?
