Healthy Community Design

Health begins where people live, learn, work, and play.  The design of our homes, schools, workplaces, streets, communities, and open spaces has a tremendous impact on health, affecting chronic diseases such as asthma, heart disease, and obesity.

The Healthy Communities Work Group of HEAL SLO works to bring health to the forefront of community design.  They promote communities with:

  • Safer streets for walking and biking
  • Ample opportunities for recreation
  • Equitable access to affordable housing, services, and wholesome food
