How to Create and Implement Healthy General Plans
A toolkit for building healthy, vibrant communities
How can public health advocates and city planners work together to create healthy, sustainable communities?
ChangeLab Solutions developed this toolkit to provide a progression of steps focused on the general plan, the key land use policy document for California cities and counties. The toolkit details a wide range of strategies, from building relationships and assessing existing conditions to creating and ultimately implementing policy language. Model health language is included to provide specific ideas for how to address health concerns through general plan policies.
This toolkit was produced with Raimi + Associates, and in partnership with The California Endowment.
