ULI Michigan Presents Building Healthy Places
On Thursday, March 6, 2014, ULI Michigan will host its first event under the Urban Land Institute’s Building Healthy Places initiative. The event, which will be held at the Henry Ford Innovation Institute, will focus on the practices and principles of building healthy places.
Attendees will receive two ULI publications; 10 Principles for Building Healthy Places and Intersections: Health and the Build Environment, both of which will be presented on during the event.
Ten Principles for Building Healthy Places, highlights the lessons learned from the three Advisory Services panels ULI conducted in Colorado in the spring of 2013 – as well as insights from a workshop attended by experts from a variety of fields – and presents ten important principles that can be used to create a new approach to building healthy communities.
Intersections: Health and the Build Environment explores global
health trends and makes the link between those trends and what has been happening to the built environment. Looking at the relationship between how healthy we are and the way our buildings and communities function, the report uses data and project examples drawn from around the world to make the case that by changing our approach to cities, communities and places, we can build our way to better health.
David Scheuer, a nationally renown industry expert and representative of ULI’s Building Healthy Places initiative, will present the Building Healthy Places reports and share his insights gained while participating on the National Advisory Service Westwood, CO panel.
The event will also feature a presentation on the Henry Ford Health System Neighborhood Master Plan. The plan seeks to maximize positive economic impacts from the Henry Ford Hospital expansion and bring positive change to the neighborhood with a strategic vision for long-term development. Through sound planning principles and the commitment of various stakeholders, the plan will provide a safe and clean environment within the neighborhood, rooted in its history. It will provide access to affordable housing and quality education, proximity to jobs, education and retail amenities and improvements to infrastructure and city services, and continues to engage residents, businesses, and institutions in its evolution.
