The Florida Department of Health in Lee County conducted an HIA of community-driven alternatives to the county’s neighborhood connectivity plan for the Tice historic community. The HIA investigated the potential health implications of community connectivity and access to green space and schools in the plan.

The report concluded that the plan stood to benefit the health and safety of residents and visitors by improving neighborhood connectivity and infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists. 

The HIA was supported by the National Association of County and City Health Officials.
