From General Plan policies to on-the- ground development projects, how can health be integrated into planning and design practices to support the daily pursuit of
healthy choices and lifestyles? This session will explore leading edge tools to promote physical activity and access to healthy foods. We’ll rst focus on General Plan
policy, with information from the Governor’s Oce of Planning and Research’s General Plan Guidelines update eort and examples on how the General Plan can set
the stage. We’ll then explore how Health Impact Assessments can inform development project decisions and be used to eectively engage community members and
leaders. Lastly, we’ll examine how careful review of Zoning Codes, Design Guidelines, Specic Plans, and Conditions of Approval can guide projects by addressing both
physical activity and food access to bring healthy living within reach of all people.
