Incorporating Transportation and Health Considerations in the Regional Planning Process: Lessons from the Real World

Incorporating Transportation and Health Considerations in the Regional Planning Process: Lessons from the Real World
An ITE Learning Hub Webinar

As the understanding and appreciation for linkages between transportation and health continues to grow, increasing attention is being paid to explicitly capturing health impacts in the transportation planning process. However, such activities are still mostly restricted to the level of individual projects or jurisdictions, due to challenges, amongst others, associated with data collection, interagency cooperation, and inconsistent development patterns across larger metropolitan regions. This webinar will present two real-world case studies of metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), the Sacramento Area Council of Governments and MetroPlan Orlando, which have applied formal health impact tools and strategies when evaluating and shaping their long-range transportation planning efforts.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify some of the most commonly-used tools for assessing the health impacts of transportation plans
  • Understand the basic methodology and application needs associated with the Integrated Transport and Health Impact Model (ITHIM)
  • Describe several elements or key publications associated with an MPO which can be evaluated using a health impacts lens
  • Identify some of unique challenges associated with planning for transportation and health at a regional scale.
