Town of Davidson, NC HIA in Comprehensive Plan

Town Of Davidson   
| Suburban |
The Town of Davidson, North Carolina did a Health Impact Assessment to determine the progress they have made from their previous comprehensive plan and determine what must be included in the town’s new comprehensive plan to further the goals of the community. The goal was to collect data on the town’s current position and develop a myriad of suggestions to promote healthy programs, policies, and infrastructure. The HIA was funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Healthy Community Design Initiative and was a key resource for Davidson’s scheduled comprehensive plan update. The HIA lists strategies for implementing quality affordable housing, safe public spaces through place making, sustainable practices, medical access, economic opportunity, and more.
