This peer-reviewed article discusses the impacts of community design on individual mobility and health and delves into which traditional and nontraditional actors—including architects, urban planners, transportation engineers, occupational therapists, and housing authorities—play critical roles in ensuring that community environments serve as facilitators (rather than barriers) to mobility.
