The Palm Beach County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is leading a US-1 Multimodal Corridor Study that encompasses the US-1 corridor in Palm Beach County from Camino Real in Boca Raton to Indiantown Road in Jupiter. The purpose of their study is to develop a plan to implement improved multimodal facilities, such as improved bus system and bike lanes, which would connect the communities along the corridor.
Healthier Jupiter has been invited by the MPO and consultants to join the US-1 Multimodal Corridor Study’s Health Impact Assessment (HIA) study. This examines the proposed US-1 corridor changes’ impact on the overall health of the communities that would be served along the corridor. This includes the potential impacts the changes could have on physical, social, economic and emotional health.
Healthier Jupiter is excited about this study in our community! Efforts to create communities that people can safely walk or bike in helps to increase physical activity and active lifestyles, which can help prevent or reduce chronic illnesses, such as diabetes. And we are excited that our Jupiter community has an opportunity to share their thoughts as well! Read below to learn how you can get involved.
