Overview

The Imagine People Here Regional Demonstration Project Toolkit was recently awarded the 2017 Plan4Health grant from the American Planning Association. The Plan4Health initiative aims to build capacity to address population health goals and promote the inclusion of health in non-traditional sectors. The project was to create a toolkit for sanctioned tactical urbanist demonstration projects. This will create a resource that will enable more people across New England to plan for and experiment with built environment changes that improve quality of life, economic activity and health. This can start the conversation of public health in transportation in your community.
