Do you worry about the air you breathe or where you can find local fruits and vegetables? Santa Clara County is creating a new Health Element, a road map for how the county’s community members — both from cities and unincorporated areas — will address health issues. Greenbelt Alliance recognizes that the way we design our communities affects our health. Smart land-use planning can foster overall well-being, diminish childhood obesity, decrease pedestrian and cyclist fatalities, increase access and support for natural resources, reduce neighborhood health disparities, decrease adult obesity and asthma, and boost healthy diets and food systems.
Santa Clara County health and planning departments want to hear your concerns and ideas about the health of your community. Come and learn about the Health Element and the connection between “place” and health at one of the April Healthy Communities Workshops, hosted by the County Planning and Public Health Departments. Workshop content will be the same at each workshop. Refreshments will be served.
