Default Washington County Survey on Bike & Pedestrian Health Impacts

I saw this in the Citizens Participation Organization #3 (CPO3) newsletter:

Washington County is conducting a rapid Health Impact Assessment (HIA) to evaluate the health effects of bicycle and pedestrian projects and policies in the county.

Washington County would like to hear from all residents about transportation and safety. A brief, anonymous survey can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/MDS9PRG.

This project will provide valuable information to decision-makers as the county updates its policies on active transportation (bicycle and pedestrian), develops a “toolkit” for bicycle facility design, and develops a strategy for prioritizing bicycle and pedestrian improvements.

County staff expect to complete the HIA process and present the findings to the Board of Commissioners in September 2012.

The departments of Health and Human Services and Land Use and Transportation were recently awarded a grant from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to fund the study.
