New report from the Building Healthy Places Initiative, released at ULI’s 2013 Fall Meeting in Chicago, delivers a new approach to building healthy communities.
Ten Principles for Building Healthy Places distills lessons learned from the three Advisory Services panels ULI conducted in the spring of 2013 as well as insights from a workshop attended by experts from a variety of fields. Read more about these Advisory Services panels here.
The report from ULI’s Building Healthy Places Initiative sets out ten important principles that can be used to create a new approach to building healthy communities. The principles in the report, if acted upon, will help people live longer, more productive lives, reduce unhealthy lifestyles, help improve a community’s competitive advantages, and allow developers, investors, local governments, and citizens to prosper in the 21st century.
The report is one in a series of Ten Principles publications from ULI.
