Return to Toolbox Main.
Change Lab Solutions developed "General Plans and Zoning: A Toolkit for Building Healthy, Vibrant communities." The toolkit is designed for public health officials interested in affecting the built environment to improve health outcomes. It gives a background on land use concepts, provides information about general plans including model language, describes the zoning process, and gives a roadmap for public health officials to impact zoning and general plans. This can be useful for local health departments looking to work with other sectors on a health in all policies approach. It provides information on how policies can improve health outcomes that local health departments can share with planning and zoning commissions.
