"Health and Community Design" is a comprehensive examination of how
the built environment encourages or discourages physical activity,
drawing together insights from a range of research on the
relationships between urban form and public health. It provides
important information about the factors that influence decisions
about physical activity and modes of travel, and about how land use
patterns can be changed to help overcome barriers to physical
activity. Chapters examine: - the historical relationship between
health and urban form in the United States
- why urban and suburban development should be designed to promote
moderate types of physical activity
- the divergent needs and requirements of different groups of
people and the role of those needs in setting policy
- how different settings make it easier or more difficult to
incorporate walking and bicycling into everyday activitiesA
concluding chapter reviews the arguments presented and sketches a
research agenda for the future.
