City of Cloquet, Arrowhead Regional Development Commission, Carlton County Public Health

The city of Cloquet, in partnership with Arrowhead Regional Development Commission and Carlton County Public Health and Human Services, will conduct an HIA to inform revisions to the transportation section of its Comprehensive Plan, which guides the city’s physical, social, and economic development. The HIA will look at the potential positive and negative health impacts of the transportation projects and policies in the plan that addresses, for example, street construction, redevelopment, and traffic speeds. The assessment will make recommendations to maximize health benefits, such as prioritizing projects that increase opportunities for physical activity, in turn affecting chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. Similarly, the HIA will seek to provide guidance to the city on how to mitigate transportation-related health risks, such as vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents and injuries.
