Planning for Health: Using Health, Safety and Equity Data to Prioritize Public Investments

This presentation is part of the Planning for a Connected, Healthy and Active Future session.

This session will highlight the intersection of planning and public health, showcasing the development of Indianapolis’ first Pedestrian Master Plan, funded through the American Planning Association Plan4Health initiative. The plan established a long-term vision for a more walkable and healthy Indianapolis and clear, equitable, data-driven priorities to guide infrastructure investments. This session will share an overview of plan development, the data and methodology employed in determining the prioritization framework and highlight other recommendations. Multidisciplinary and interagency collaboration, as well as the innovative ways in which key stakeholders and the general public were engaged in the process, will be discussed.

Presenter: Kate Riordan, Active Living Program Manager, Health by Design
