Rochester Waterfront Revitalization Plan
- Rochester, New York
- University of Rochester
This HIA will supplement the development of the City of Rochester’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) with health-related community engagement, data collection and analysis. This program will help inform city, private, state, and federal decisions affecting area waterways and shorelines into the next decade. The HIA will be conducted by University of Rochester. As a member of the Waterfront Revitalization Advisory Committee—which includes a range of government agencies and community-based organizations—the University of Rochester will seek to incorporate health considerations in the plan’s goals, scope, and recommendations.
The LWRP will guide land and water uses, development, transportation, and management of natural resources in the waterfront area. Health-related issues that the HIA will address include, for example, how the LWRP will affect issues and opportunities regarding physical activity, air and water pollution, and seafood contamination.
Stakeholders, such as the Sector 4 Community Development Corporation, Monroe County Department of Public Health, and Rochester Department of Neighborhood and Business Development, have expressed strong support for the HIA and intend to actively participate in its conduct.
