Implementing Active Design/Transportation
Areas that encourage walking and biking typically contain a combination of the streetscape, adjacent development, and how it all comes together to influence the surrounding community. With these correlations in mind, Active Design works to improve health outcomes by designing spaces that promote and facilitate regular physical activity. Local governments, developers, and residents can explore applying an Active Design approach at the project level through this technical assistance program.
This project is funded in part by a Sustainable Communities Planning Grant from the California Strategic Growth Council.
