I get flooded all the time with "stuff" on how to incorporate public health into planning and I keep thinking, isn't this how it all got started?
the original building code was created, in part, for public health reasons
Did we veer astray from our genesis and are now coming back to it?
I guess I'm on overload today but I just got a postcard for the Active Living Network and I thought to myself "oh okay, Uncle, okay?"
or maybe I just have a bad atittude today, which is possible...
The years I worked in Massachsuetts, public health was a division within the Planning Department - I was in culture shock to come up here to Maine and find it marginally attached to the Fire Department and that programming was done by a local private non-profit
what's your experience with this "cutting edge" planning psyche of public health and planning?
