    HEALTHY COMMUNITIES

    Physical Activity

    Active Transportation
    Public transit, greenways and trails, sidewalks and safe street crossings near schools, bicycle paths, traffic-calming devices, and sidewalks that connect schools and homes to destinations—are associated with greater physical activity and lower obesity rates. SRHD partnered with a broad spectrum of community groups and leaders on active transportation projects: Complete Streets, City of Spokane Valley Bike and Pedestrian Plan, Safe Routes to School, City of Spokane Pedestrian Plan.

    Health Impact Assessments
    The World Health Organization defines Health Impact Assessments as a combination of procedures, methods and tools by which a policy, program or project may be judged as to its potential effect on the health of a population, and the distribution of those effects within the population. SRHD partnered with the City of Spokane to implement an HIA on the proposed University District Bike and Pedestrian Bridge. The recommendations will be taken into consideration when the bridge is designed.

    Safe Routes to School
    Creating safe routes to school encourages children and parents to walk instead of drive and helps them meet the recommended 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Safe Routes to School, organized by the WA Department of Transportation, provides all the tools to help any school or school district do this. As part of an ARRA grant, SRHD worked with school administrators, staff, parents and children to do walking audits of their routes to school. Because of this work, three districts are poised to apply for SR2S funding in 2012.
