HIA of the Bernalillo County Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety Action Plan

OVERVIEW

The Health Impact Assessment (HIA) examines the impact of the Bernalillo County Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety Action Plan (Plan) on accessibility and safety on Second Street in the Mountain View neighborhood. The Plan is a ten-year Facility Master Plan that includes suggested capital improvement projects for Second Street and other streets in Mountain View, which are the focus of the HIA.

The Bernalillo County Place Matters Team, with input from its community engagement specialists, took guidance from the Mountain View community. In researching policies that could favorably impact accessibility and safety issues, a Mountain View resident recommended conducting a HIA on the Plan. The HIA partners recognized that the Plan and its potential recommendations for physical infrastructure improvements could support the neighborhood’s objectives to increase safety and accessibility for pedestrian and bicycle travel, especially for children and persons with mobility disabilities.
