A Healthy Los Angeles

posted Oct 28, 2013, 2:21 PM by BHC South LA
The Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles is a new health and wellness chapter that will be added to the Framework Element of the city’s General Plan. The General Plan is the blueprint for how and where the city will grow and develop. The Framework Element of the General Plan defines citywide policies that influence the other elements in the planning document, providing high level policy vision for transportation, land use, housing, open space and economic development, among others. The Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles elevates health as a priority in the city’s future growth and development, establishing a policy framework to make Los Angeles a healthier place to live, work and play. BHC South LA organizations are working with the city to draft the Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles. Residents are also invited and involved in the process. The draft is expected to be available for public review in early 2014. To learn more about the plan and process, visit the website athttp://healthyplan.la/.
