City Of Los Angeles

Los Angeles wants to decrease health inequalities, chronic disease and obesity amongst the community. As a result, the ULI Los Angeles’ Healthy Community Implementation Toolbox was created for local governments and officials in public works, planning, and private developers. The goal of this toolbox is to create a healthy environment with creative active living design plans, incorporating fast food regulations and healthy retail incentives, along with farmers’ markets and community gardens. The toolbox outlines twelve tools for developing healthy communities; general plans, zoning, specific plans, specialized or topic specific plans, design guidelines, public works, building codes, ordinances, programs, data collection and monitoring, project evaluation and community engagement.
