Eastern Neighborhoods Community Health Impact Assessment (ENCHIA)

Location
San Francisco, California
Organization(s)
San Francisco Department of Public Health

The HIA was done by the San Francisco Department of Public Health in response to community requests in the Mission, South of Market, and Potrero Hill neighborhoods. The HIA addressed a range of factors in the community plans that could affect health, including housing affordability; the potential that low-income residents could be displaced; the availability of safe places to walk; noise; air quality; employment; public services; and access to parks and open space.

Outcome

The HIA led to the development of the Healthy Development Measurement Tool, a health-based planning tool for land use decisions.
