Page Avenue Revitalization


Page Avenue Revitalization
Location Pagedale Missouri
Organization Washington University in St. Louis Institute for Public Health

Washington University in St. Louis conducted a health impact assessment (HIA) on a $45-million revitalization project in the City of Pagedale, Missouri. The HIA focused on the redevelopment of a main street, Page Avenue, and examined the way that changes to the area—including a new grocery store and development of vacant lots—would affect the health of its residents. The HIA team sought to highlight opportunities through which the revitalization could help make Pagedale a safer, more walkable city, and increase access to healthy foods.
