Abstract: As part of Clark County Public Health’s Planning Active
Walkable Neighborhoods project, a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) was
conducted on the county’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. A rapid
HIA was completed to provide input on the draft plan, and a subsequent
comprehensive HIA was designed to evaluate the impacts of final
proposals. This presentation will provide an overview of the process and
results of the HIA, examine lessons learned, and discuss transferability
to other jurisdictions or projects.
