Overview

Integrating Health in the Planner’s Toolbox Learn how health can be integrated into traditional planning tools from General Plans to environmental assessments to zoning codes. This session will explore how virtually any planning document can incorporate healthy community principles. Participants will be introduced to the Healthy Communities Toolkit recently released by Friends of Harbors, Beaches and Parks. The Healthy Communities Toolkit provides thoughtful examples of tools, policies, and funding mechanisms that help create healthy communities. This session will also feature the County of Riverside General Plan Healthy Communities Element as an example of integrating health into a local agency’s critical planning documents. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss opportunities for further integrating health into the planner’s toolbox.
