Assoc. prof. Botchwey's Health Impact Assessment class presents draft plan for North Birmingham revitalization

External News Details

The Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham has been hired to create a framework plan for North Birmingham redevelopment. Before the commission drafts a plan, they are looking to graduate students from Georgia Tech's School City and Regional Planning. Students in associate professor Nisha Botchwey's Health Impact Assessment (HIA) course presented a draft HIA to members of the North Birmingham Coalition, the Regional Planning Commission, and Birmingham City Councilman William Parker. The students recommendations include down-zoning in areas around industrial facilities, community specific shuttles services for better access to health care, workforce development programs, and a free space plan to help separate industry from residential areas. The final version of the HIA is expected to be complete by summer.
