The HIA assessed the health benefits and obstacles to the Xcel Energy Corridor Trail. The trail is planned as part of a larger bicycle and transportation plan. Some of the pathways and health issues explored included safety, accessibility, social capital, social interaction, mental health, physical activity, water and air quality, land use and traffic. The HIA recommended: 1) safety measures, such as lighting, police presence and traffic-calming measures; 2) amenities, such as benches, bathrooms and quiet spaces; 3) landscape design, such as community gardens; and 4) community-involvement initiatives.
