The fields of city planning and public health are converging. Mounting scientific evidence supports a causal relationship between the impacts of design, development patterns, and transportation on community health outcomes. These findings are compelling public action to integrate health and well-being within the development process.  Designing for healthier communities often requires rethinking public systems to support more coordination across agencies and disciplines. Throughout the US, communities are tackling this challenge and pursuing active collaborations between health professionals and urban planners.

On Thursday, June 20, 2013 the ULI Rose Center for Public Leadership, in partnership with the Center for Active Design, invites you to a webinar presentation about how planners in Hennepin County, MN and Nashville, TN are designing policies that integrate public health considerations with land use decisions.

Please join us as Karen R. Nikolai of the Housing, Community Works and Transit Department, Hennepin County, MN and Mary Elizabeth Ikard of the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization provide context to their regions’ approaches to developing integrative plans, review the principles at the heart of the process, and discuss the political and practical lessons learned through these endeavors.

This is a great opportunity for ULI public members to learn practical strategies and tools – drawn from real-time events – that can be taken and applied in their community.

There is no cost to attend this webinar. Click here to register.
