Dry Horizons: Plan to grow healthy communities

January 18, 2018

The January edition of Dry Horizons featured a planning guide from the American Planning Association that promoted addressing public health impacts of communities as was historically done.

 “The bottom line for planners is to understand and affirm that how a community is planned and designed has a direct effect on the health of its residents,” the guide states. “It is also critical for planners to use this understanding, and the guide generally, as the standard for creation of good public policy.”

 Also in this edition:

  • On-demand webinars offer expertise on drought;
  • With growing season just ahead, don’t forget to plan for drought; and
  • Cape Town facing water showdown.
