Vitruvian Planning, Kostelec Planning, Connect Buncombe

As part of the Buncombe County (North Carolina) Master Greenway Plan, Vitruvian Planning is leading an HIA to inform the final plan. The HIA will apply a public health lens to the design of the greenway system and help illustrate how the network can potentially improve health indicators of Buncombe residents. The assessment includes local experts in health, land use, transportation, education, environment, and economics, and seeks to determine mitigation strategies by targeting design considerations and implementation strategies.
