Project Description: 

HIP2, with the help of hard work from Arizona State University graduate students, prepared a HIA to recommend strategies to ensure health equity in the community surrounding the alignment of the Tempe Modern Street Car. Health risks that were assessed include air pollution, physical activity, safety and injury prevention, accessibility to resources, neighborhood environment, and livelihood.
