Tailor city policies and programs to improve public health
Sustainable Cities are healthy cities. Improving public health is an essential priority of sustainable communities. Health is an inherent aspect of all parts of our built environments, from the construction and use of buildings, to the design of neighborhoods, to the places we provide for recreation, to the emphasis we place on the health of citizens. Cities in King County can tailor regulations and provide incentives that focus building design, land use, and resource management on the health of our citizens.
