This health impact assessment will inform and influence planning and implementation decisions related to the establishment of a trail and greenway network traversing diverse communities on Cuyahoga County’s eastside. The Eastside Greenway was initiated to connect the eastside of Cleveland and thirteen eastside suburbs through a unified trail system, connecting neighborhoods to parks, employment and recreation centers to improve quality of life by enhancing the transportation and recreational opportunities in the area, as well as, catalyzing economic development.   Specifically, the plan has the potential to impact health and equity by considering safety and perception of crime, access to parks and recreation areas, decreased motor vehicle use, access to healthy food, and access to goods and services. The multiyear planning process began in 2012, and the HIA will provide recommendations on the plan development, design, and implementation of the project.
