The West Hayden Island Final Health Analysis is now available for review and will be shared with the public at an open house tonight on Hayden Island. This report was prepared through a partnership between the Multnomah County Health Department, Upstream Public Health, Oregon Public Health Institute and the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability.
This health analysis constitutes Step 1 of a two-step process to evaluate health impacts of potential marine terminal development on the community. The evaluation identifies a range of potential impacts, based on the WHI Concept Plan and the zoning proposal that will go before the Planning and Sustainability Commission for consideration. The report references a number of other supporting documents with primary data, including a baseline noise study, traffic study and port emissions data. Both the Draft Health Analysis and the supporting documents can be found on the WHI website under Technical Studies: Phase II.
The Planning and Sustainability Commission will hold a special hearing on the entire WHI Proposed Draft (including the health analysis) on November 15, 5:30-9 p.m. at the Portland Building. Public testimony will be taken at this time.
