ThinkTech Hawaii, Jay Fidell's Hawaii Public Radio program on FM89.3 KIPO, has posted both the show (20mb mp3) and the aftershow podcast (13mb mp3) of yesterday's "Honolulu's Fixed Guideways - How Will The Surrounding Areas be Developed." I was a guest along with UH Law Professor David Callies, and Honolulu attorney and developer Vernon Woo.

And the aftershow here:
Jay led a wide-ranging discussion on legal, land use, and political issues related to Honolulu's $4B "fixed guideway" mass transit system. We talked about public-private development partnerships, eminent domain, transit-oriented development and other related subjects. Jay's final question: "if you were King, what would you do about the rail?" Food for thought.
