As part of the Buncombe County Master Greenway Plan, Vitruvian Planning is heading up a Health Impact Assessment to better inform the final plan. The HIA is intended to utilize the lens of public health as a contributor towards design and prioritization of the greenway system and to help illustrate how the network can potentially impact health measures of Buncombe residents. The assessment is inclusive of local experts in health, land use, transportation, education, environmental, and economics, and seeks to determine mitigation strategies by targeting design considerations and implementation strategies.
