A Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is underway for Globeville, Elyria, and Swansea. An HIA is a decision support tool that evaluates the impact of a policy or plan on the health of a population. The Globeville Elyria-Swansea HIA is being conducted as part of the on-going neighborhood planning processes in Globeville and Elyria-Swansea. Once completed, the HIA will result in a report with recommendations for how the neighborhood plans can improve health outcomes within the neighborhoods.
An important part of the HIA process is to include community input on health-related topics such as environmental quality, mobility, recreation, and public safety. To support this effort, the neighborhood planning processes for Globeville and Elyria-Swansea will be sponsoring a special joint public meeting on the Health Impact Assessment.
This is a rescheduled meeting from January.
