DEVELOPMENT/SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES PLAN
These eight regional plans reflect each area's vision, and are intended to guide City land use approvals, infrastructure improvements and private sector investment decisions. The Development Plans for 'Ewa, and the Primary Urban Center and the Central O’ahu Sustainable Communities Plan recognize and support the O'ahu General Plan policy of directing most of O'ahu's population growth and development activity to those three areas, whereas, the Sustainable Communities Plans for East Honolulu, Ko'olau Poko, Ko'olau Loa, North Shore, and Wai'anae implement the General Plan policy of sustaining their modest development patterns and rural character. The regional plans are required by City Charter and adopted by the City Council by ordinance.

DP/SCP REVIEWS FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO PLANS AND THEIR IMPLEMENTATION
Periodic reviews of the development plans and sustainable communities plans are mandated and managed by the Department. These community-based reviews evaluate the adopted plan's validity and effectiveness and recommend improvements to both the Plan, and the Plan's implementation. Status of Review Programs
An amendment request that is independent of the department's review process would require a DP/SCP Amendment Application (instructions)
