Rochester Waterfront Revitalization Plan

Rochester, New York
University of Rochester

This HIA conducted by the University of Rochester supplemented the development of the City of Rochester’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) with health-related community engagement, data collection, and analysis. This program will help inform city, private, state, and federal decisions affecting area waterways and shorelines into the next decade. The LWRP will guide land and water use, development, transportation, and management of natural resources in the waterfront area. As a member of the Waterfront Revitalization Advisory Committee—which includes a range of government agencies and community-based organizations—the University of Rochester sought to incorporate health considerations into the plan’s goals, scope, and recommendations. The HIA focused on how the LWRP may affect the health of residents nearby, visitors to the waterfront, and the general population. Pathways explored include opportunities for physical activity and water quality.
