Land Use and Planning Services

Land use decisions can have widespread impact on the environment and public health.  The way our communities grow can directly affect the health of current and future generations. How we build our homes, industrial facilities, parks and streets influence air and water quality; noise,  wildlife, and other health factors.

Well-planned development can promote health by making regular exercise and good nutrition the easy choice, creating safe neighborhoods, ensuring stewardship of natural resources, and enhancing the quality of life.

Tri-County Health Department collaborates with local governments, other agencies, developers, and the public to incorporate public health considerations into planning and development activities. We encourage the inclusion of health-promoting policies in long range plans and reflection of health considerations in individual development decisions.
