Healthy Community Design Baseline Project: Neighborhood Design Survey and Physical Indicators

Healthy Community Design Baseline Project: Neighbourhood Design Survey and Physical Indicators is a collaborative project that incorporates the expertise of public health and municipal planning professionals, to create tailored baseline measures of healthy community design features. This project involved the collection, analysis, and presentation of physical design data and residents’ perspectives regarding neighbourhood design, transportation networks, natural environments and food environments. These data will help Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health and four local municipalities better understand local physical environments, celebrate design strengths, identify areas of opportunity and collaboration to create healthier built environments, and track progress over time.

The final reports can be found here. Additionally, a blog highlighting this project written by Amanda Scales has been posted.
