Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: They have no specific groups of people that they must talk to . . . Usually their observations are half a day during the week or during the weekend . . . They'll talk to people who come to use the parks, why they come there, what would keep them away, and homelessness always comes up . . . I have some guiding questions they should be exploring . . . Sometimes they talk with people who are a big part of the community, especially the elderly, but also with commuters—which is important for us, as Planners, we need to understand who are the people who aren't really interested in hanging out in Moʻiliʻili, and why--what do they think of the neighborhood? It's important for students to understand that aspect as well . . . So we've had interesting stories about what goes on in the neighborhood.
