Healthy Community Design - Policy Statements for Official Plans

This document provides a series of suggested policy statements and implementation activities related to land use, community design and public health. The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) offers these suggestions for policy direction in the hope that municipalities adopt them as part of their Official Plans, activities and programs to improve the health of their residents. Given the diversity and the mix of rural and urban communities within the District of Muskoka and County of Simcoe, these suggestions have been developed to be as versatile as possible. The health unit suggests that incorporating the content of this document should be part of well defined strategies and community engagement processes so that it can fit the physical and social context of the community.
