Contents: Introduction : Toward Healthy Neighborhoods --
Principle 1. Importance : Assess how health matters in this place. Proposition 1 : Figure out if there are good reasons for considering health ; Proposition 2 : Identify an initial list of neighborhood-relevant health issues ; Proposition 3 : Figure out if anyone else cares --
Principle 2. Balance : Make healthier places by balancing physical changes with other interventions to appeal to different kinds of people. Proposition 4 : Understand that trade-offs are inherent in planning for health at all scales and this is true of neighborhoods as well ; Proposition 5 : Appreciate that there is no ideal size for a healthy community, but different dimensions of health relate to different scales --
Principle 3. Vulnerability : Plan and design for those with the most health vulnerabilities and fewest resources for making healthy choices. Proposition 6 : Create a variety of housing options to promote housing choices within the neighborhood ; Proposition 7 : Integrate universal design principles into neighborhood planning and design ; Proposition 8 : Increase choice, access, and exposure to high quality, diverse, and healthy food options, especially in low-income areas --
Principle 4. Layout : Foster multiple dimensions of health through overall neighborhood layout. Proposition 9 : Create mixed use neighborhoods with a balance of activities that support good health ; Proposition 10 : Provide enough density of population to support services for a healthy lifestyle ; Proposition 11 : Create a connected, "healthier" travel circulation pattern for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users--
the vehicular pattern can be different ; Proposition 12 : Increase access to a variety of locally relevant recreational facilities and green spaces --
Principle 5. Access : Provide options for getting around and increasing geographic access. Proposition 13 : Coordinate land-use planning and urban design with transit to increase efficiency, access, and mobility ; Proposition 14 : Adopt policies and planning practices to create safe neighborhood transportation options for all types of road users ; Proposition 15 : Ensure adequate pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure and amenities --
Principle 6. Connection : Create opportunities for people to interact with each other in positive ways. Proposition 16 : Create publicly accessible neighborhood spaces, programs, and events to support healthy interactions and behaviors ; Proposition 17 : Design the public realm to reduce street crime and fear of crime --
Principle 7. Protection : Reduce harmful exposures at a neighborhood level through a combination of wider policies and regulations along with local actions. Proposition 18 : Reduce pollutants and chemicals at the source and separate people from toxins through buffers, technology, or design ; Proposition 19 : Separate people and infrastructure from areas vulnerable to natural disasters and build in resilience through technology or design ; Proposition 20 : Reduce unwanted local noise exposure at the source, and separate people from noise through buffers, technology, or design --
Principle 8. Implementation : Coordinate diverse actions over time - Conclusion --
Appendix A : Actions Checklist --
Appendix B : Health Topics Addressed by Section.
