On the heels of my earlier post, I was wondering what you folks think about the concept of strategic physical activity plans for metropolitant areas with collaboration between urban planners and public health people to arrive at development, land use, zoning etc. decisions always have the endgoal of physical activity in mind? Do you think they are fessible, redundant etc. in metropolitan ares?
I guess I should elaborate: a region near me is piloting an initiative whereby all development decision would be both statistically modelled and reviewed by public health officials, as to their potential impact on physical activity levels.
