Overview

At this Central California convening of planning and public health professionals, Participants will identify opportunities to pursue collaborative, cross-sector work to address shared priorities and goals. Using real life case stories, attendees will learn about the concrete strategies used by several local jurisdictions that have successfully brought together planners, public health and community members to design healthy built environments. Participants will have numerous opportunities to discuss with their own teams and with other jurisdictions how these strategies can be applied in the local setting.

Objectives:

- Use strategies to integrate healthy community policies and activities into local planning processes and projects to meet shared objectives

- Work together in teams with planners and public health experts to address an issue of local priority in the next twelve months

- Use collaboration strategies identified at the meeting to compete more effectively for funding to support the development of healthy communities

- Integrate broad, informed community input into local planning processes, including populations at risk for adverse health outcomes
