As part of the Gateway Corridor planning effort, a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is being completed to evaluate the potential health effects of the project before it is implemented. The HIA is supported by a $100,000 grant from the Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, with funding from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation.
The Gateway Corridor HIA will focus on land use decisions around each of the proposed Gateway stations from a public health perspective. The HIA will use input from this worksheet and the public process to select several land use and public health goals that are important to the corridor. To learn more about HIAs, please visit http://www.pewtrusts.org/en/projects/health-impact-project.
Health Impact Assessment Fact Sheet
A fact sheet about the project has been prepared if you would like additional information for your agency/community. It can be found here.
Health Impact Assessment Engagement
As part of the engagement for the HIA we are collecting information from the community about what is important to them about health and their neighborhoods. We request that each of you fill out the worksheet via the link below. We would also like you to distribute this to your networks. The more information we have about what is important to you and your community, the better the results of the HIA will be.
