Creating a Regulatory Blueprint for Healthy Community Design


ICMA’s consumer guide, Creating a Regulatory Blueprint for healthy Community Design, is a road map for local government officials and their staff as they consider reforming zoning and development codes to encourage more physical activity in their areas. The guide is especially useful now as more and more jurisdictions focus on modernization of zoning and land development codes to encourage the design of more livable neighborhoods.

Local jurisdictions will find this guide useful for communicating across sectors about the importance of using policy to improve health outcomes as part of their efforts to implement Health in All Policies (HiAP).
