 ホノルル市議のアーニー・マーティン氏が、オアフ島ダウンタウンにあるホノルル市庁舎を、島西部にあるカポレイ地区に移転する新案の提出を検討していることが明らかになった。 ホノルル市が市庁舎として利用しているホノルルハレは1928年に建てられており、マーティン議員は「ホノルルハレは歴史的建造物で非常に美しく価値がありますが、市庁舎として利用するには不便で、市民に十分なサービスを提供できているとはいえません」と話し、2001年にカポレイ地区にオープンした市庁舎の別館であるカポレイハレに多くの当局関連施設も移転しており、カポレイ地区に市庁舎を全面的に移転することを検討するのも良いのではないかとしている。 マーティン議員は今後、市庁舎移転に関する新提案を議会の予算委員会に提出する意向を示している。
