The Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development (CQGRD) at the Georgia Institute of Technology is conducting a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) on redevelopment plans for the site of the former Hapeville Ford Assembly Plant. The HIA will promote the explicit consideration of the human health impacts of the proposed redevelopment project so that health costs are not unevenly distributed and all opportunities to mitigate negative impacts and increase health benefits are considered.

The assembly plant is to be redeveloped as “Aerotropolis Atlanta”, with over 6.5 million square feet of office, hotel, shopping and airport parking facilities, as well as a solar energy component. The 122-acre site is bounded by I-75, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the new residential development of Asbury Park, and downtown Hapeville.

Health Impact Assessment is a combination of procedures, methods and tools that systematically judges the potential, and sometimes unintended, effects of a policy, plan, program, or project on the health of a population and the distribution of those effects within the population. HIA identifies appropriate actions to manage those effects.

The purpose of this survey is to learn about the experiences of people who live, work, shop, or otherwise spend time near the redevelopment site. It is designed to tell us if the study area is a place where people can be safe, healthy, and happy.
