Yavapai County Community Health Services conducted an HIA of the Regional Mobility Management Implementation Plan for Yavapai County. The plan is designed to improve mobility and access within and around the county by addressing linkages between existing public transit services and improving infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians. The HIA concluded that it would reduce the risk of obesity and chronic diseases and improve mental health and air quality. The report found that the plan would also improve the community’s economy, opportunities for social activity, access to medical care, and public safety.
