PlanCheck NC Zoom Meeting
Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 10:00AM
We would like to extend an invitation to a presentation on the Healthy Buildings, Healthy Places Design Guide that will take place on Saturday, April 10th during a PlanCheck NC meeting.
The Healthy Buildings, Healthy Places Design Guide builds upon the Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles and the Citywide Design Guidelines by reinforcing linkages between health, equity, and planning; and recognizing the role that building design can play in promoting favorable health outcomes, particularly in communities of color that have long suffered from disinvestment.
The guide will introduce practical strategies that place people first in the design of buildings and public spaces, through measures such as: adaptable indoor/outdoor common areas that animate shared spaces; placement of staircases to promote physical activity; usable balconies and outdoor rooms to provide areas of respite from stress and overcrowding; improved indoor air and daylighting; and special design considerations for at-risk populations in group living quarters such as nursing homes, which have been hard-hit by COVID-19.
