Patricia Salkin (Albany) and Pamela Ko (Albany) have posted The Effective Use of Health Impact Assessment (HIA) in Land-Use Decision Making, Zoning Practice (Oct. 2011). The abstract:
Health impact assessments (HIAs) outside of the United States have long been used to hone in on the public health impacts of certain government decision making. While health impacts have been considered to a lesser degree through environmental impact review (EIR) in the United States, recent findings suggest that HIAs can be very helpful in analyzing proposed development and redevelopment projects. This article briefly reviews the history of the HIA movement, examines the differences between HIA and EIR, and provides those involved with the land use planning and regulation examples of how to best integrate HIAs into the land use decision making process.
