Davidson Walks and Rolls: Active Transportation Master Plan Rapid HIA
- Davidson, North Carolina
- Davidson Design for Life, Alta Planning and Design
In 2013, Davidson Design for Life and Alta Planning and Design partnered to incorporate health and social equity modeling and economic analysis on the benefits of implementing infrastructure improvements into an active transportation plan. The HIA estimated the current usage of bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure; projected the health, environmental, and social externalities of increased active transportation; and mapped different socioeconomic and environmental indicators to identify areas of high priority for infrastructure improvements.
OutcomeThe HIA was incorporated into the overall master plan which was adopted in November of 2013. The health and social equity analysis included as part of the HIA was used to develop a list of priority projects as well as identify high health priority areas within the town to focus infrastructure improvement efforts.
