The HEALU Network presents a summit on Creating Safe and Healthy Communities: Healthy Land Use Planning, Community Engagement, and Zoning this Thursday, September 13th at The California Endowment in Los Angeles.
This is the fourth in a series of “innovation summits” the HEALU Network has hosted over the last few years, designed to build knowledge, dialogues, and an ever-growing network among people working at the intersection of health, safety, equity, and land use.
The summit will explore how land use decisions impact community safety and wellbeing; speakers will include Bruce Durbin, a Senior Regional Planner from LA County, James Burks, a Director of Cultural Affairs (whose expertise is in land use planning, inclusion, and cultural arts), and a youth panel working on built environment assessment, engagement, and policy. Presenters will discuss how current land use decisions and investments impact community health and violence prevention. Discussion will focus on how community-based initiatives can promote health through innovative land use polices and approaches that center equity, safety, and health.
