North Aurora Regional Recreation

Location North Aurora Colorado
Organization EnviroHealth Consulting; Stapleton Foundation’s "Be Well" Initiative

EnviroHealth Consulting conducted a rapid health impact assessment for the Stapleton Foundation of a low-income area in North Aurora, Colorado. The goal of the HIA was to inform the decision of the location of a regional recreation center.  One city-owned property and three privately-owned properties were under consideration. EnviroHealth analyzed available community health data, determined data gaps, and collected the additional planning data with Foundation staff. The assessment process used the evidence-based data to make recommendations specific to each potential site. Based on access, equity, and supporting the health, safety, and well being of North Aurora, the HIA recommended one site, the Fitzsimons Centerpiece site, for the regional recreation facility.
