This webinar, co-sponsored by the CDC’s Public Health Law Program and the American Planning Association, and hosted by APA’s Planning & Law Division, will explore the connection between health and the built environment.
This 90-minute session will focus on the comprehensive land use plan, or master plan, for the future development of a community. Comprehensive plans are critical legal documents for two principal reasons: they provide a significant opportunity to educate, engage, and transform the public and public opinion about emerging issues; and, the comprehensive plan guides the adoption of zoning and other land use regulations that shape human settlements and determine whether they foster or frustrate efforts to protect and advance public health.
