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 incorporation of health considerations in individual development decisions.
