Health and Housing

Where people live, the quality of their housing, the places in and around the home where children play, and the type of land homes are built on can have profound and lasting impacts on health. 

Housing options that serve the needs of all of your residents help create neighborhoods that are vibrant, promote social cohesion and encourage bicycling and walking for recreation and transportation.

Key words: building materials, pollution exposure from adjacent land uses, diverse housing stock, universal design, affordable housing, aging in place, green building
