South Thornton Revitalization Subarea Plan

City of Thornton, Colorado
Community Enterprise

In 2011, a Colorado-based nonprofit conducted an HIA to determine the impact of South Thornton’s revitalization subarea plan on healthy eating and active living. The HIA focused on key indicators derived from the Healthy Development Measurement Tool: public infrastructure and access to goods and services; social connections and communication; and transportation options. Potential health outcomes of this plan included changes in overweight and obesity; certain cancers; health disease; diabetes; and stroke. The HIA determined that the revitalization plan would have positive health outcomes and offered recommendations to strengthen health impacts. Community-driven findings related to increasing multi-modal transportation connectivity, and safety and image through the vitalization plan were included in the final report, presented before city council, and ultimately informed the city's implementation efforts.
