New EPA Publication on Community Design and Healthy Aging


Thanks to Smart Growth America for highlighting a new EPA guidebook, Growing Smarter, Living Healthier.  This publication not only shows how research links community design and public health (for instance, in terms of walkability), but also underscores the importance of older Americans having a strong voice  in planning and development decisions.  This publication is doubly relevant for communities here in Pennsylania–in light of both the aging of the boomer generation and the Commonwealth’s already sizable population of seniors.
