The Florida Department of Health in Pasco County (DOH-Pasco) surveyed the Holiday FL. community in January to help determine the physical, environmental, health, and safety needs of residents in the community. The survey conducted was called the Protocol for Assessing Community Excellence in Environmental Health (PACE=EH).
DOH-Pasco’s health equity team reached out to residents in the Holiday community both online
and in person. During their outreach, the health equity team requested feedback regarding the
concerns and needs of the community.
Some of the top concerns from the survey are:
• A need for adequate equipment at playgrounds for special
• Better community appearance, and water quality
• Removal of abandoned buildings and cars
• A need for adequate street lighting
• Additional community recreation centers, parks, playgrounds
• Additional bike racks at local stores and county buildings
• A need for carbon monoxide detectors in homes
• Better trails, sidewalks, and bike lanes
• Mosquito concerns and roaming stray animals
With these results, DOH-Pasco is partnering with Pasco County government to address these
concerns in an effort to create a healthier community.
