Research

As part of its founding mission, HCBF studies the impact of Port operations on the communities of Wilmington and San Pedro. We have completed a noise study of Wilmington and are currently conducting an off-Port land use impact study of Wilmington and San Pedro. We have also compiled a list of free tools and resources to help you better understand the environmental and health landscape of San Pedro and Wilmington.

Wilmington Noise Study

HCBF has completed a four-part noise impact assessment in Wilmington to establish the zones of greatest noise impact from the TraPac terminal. The following reports are available to download:

Report #1: Noise Measurement
Report #2: Criteria and Prioritization Recommendations 
Report #3: Noise Contour Development Methodology 
Report #4: Property Inventory and Mitigation Recommendations

Off-Port Land Use Impact Study

HCBF has selected Raimi + Associates to complete a comprehensive off-Port land use impact study. The goal of the study is to understand the relationship between Port and Port-related land uses and various indicators of a healthy community in Wilmington and San Pedro, and to help HCBF and other community stakeholders identify unique opportunities for future community investment.

HCBF expects the study to be completed and available in March 2017.
