Gary/New Duluth Small Area Plan HIA

In February 2014, the City released draft Small Area Plan (SAP) recommendations for the neighborhood of Gary/New Duluth. The small area plan will augment the comprehensive plan by building on the goals, policies and implementation strategies in the comprehensive plan and providing a finer level of detail.

MDH has been conducting a health impact assessment (HIA) on the SAP in collaboration with City staff and a Technical Advisory Committee made up of community members and representatives from St. Louis County Public Health, Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging, Parks and Recreation, Metropolitan Interstate Council, and St. Luke’s Hospital. The purpose of the HIA is to explore how the SAP will impact the community's health, positively and negatively, and make recommendations to the SAP to promote positive impacts and reduce negative impacts. Contact health.hia@state.mn.us for a copy of the draft HIA report.
