City of Sheridan Comprehensive Plan Update

Location Sheridan Colorado
Organization Tri-County Health Department

The Tri-County Health Department conducted an HIA of Sheridan’s Comprehensive Plan update, which is intended to help frame policies that maximize positive health effects and prioritize implementation strategies. The previous Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2004, had focused on programmatic municipal changes and guidance for specific properties in the community. One objective for the new plan was to include sections on transportation, connectivity, economic opportunities, neighborhood development, and the environment. The HIA examined the proposed plan’s potential impacts on residents’ economic opportunity, access to food, sense of safety and social connectedness, physical activity, and air and water quality.

Outcome

The HIA team presented its findings and recommendations to the Sheridan Planning Commission and City Council in March 2015, and policymakers passed a resolution supporting incorporation of all of the report’s recommendations into the comprehensive plan, which was subsequently adopted June 8, 2015.
