Goodhue County Health and Human Services, in partnership with the Goodhue County Land Use Management Department, will conduct an HIA to inform decisions around the county’s zoning districts. The assessment will provide information on the potential health benefits resulting from the creation of bike and walking trails in recreational areas, as well as the possible negative impacts caused by construction industrial operations, such as more cases of respiratory illnesses related to increased traffic. The HIA will also consider the potential impact of housing displacement on residents’ mental health if land-use changes require relocation.

This HIA is funded through support from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation.
