Project summary

The county is drafting a Health Element for the 2016 Comprehensive Growth Management Plan update. The plan will include policies and strategies for improving the long-term health of our community.

The Health Element will:

  • Describe the ways that the built environment influences health.
  • Assess existing conditions; both assets for promoting health and barriers to making healthy choices.
  • Examine current plans and regulations as they relate to health.
  • Integrate community input to describe a vision of a healthy community.
  • Highlight the impact of public decisions on health, especially impacts on disadvantaged populations.
  • Identify policies and strategies for growing healthier over the next 20 years, along with performance measures to help track progress.

This effort, has resulted in The Growing Healthier Report.
