Six Keys to a Healthy Community

This is an eight minute video that highlights the six key components to a healthy community. These keys include village centers with mixed use areas that allow for shopping, living and working in one central location; affordable housing that is close to jobs and recreation; centrally located schools in safe neighborhoods that encourage our children to walk and bike to school; public spaces that allow us to come together as a community for social events like farmers’ markets and entertainment; plenty of green spaces for residents to play and relax in; and finally, transportation options that give residents the choice to walk, bike or drive to their destinations.
