Hamilton Springs Transit Oriented Development HIA

Hamilton Springs Transit Oriented Development HIA


Lebanon , Tennessee


Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization

In 2012, construction crews broke ground on Middle Tennessee’s first transit-oriented development. The developer was interested in possibly including a school as part of the TOD Master Plan. The MPO was approached by the master site planner to provide information that would help the developer understand the economic and public health benefits of having a school within the TOD.  The MPO decided that a Health Impact Assessment that evaluated factors such as the siting of the school, the surrounding retail food environment, and availability of transportation options, could illustrate the potential impact on child health as well as the health of those who live and work within the TOD.
