View Executive Summary
The purpose of this project is to provide a guidebook for planners to learn what type of land use code language can be adapted for equitable access to healthy food. Often there is a challenge in translating goals expressed in comprehensive and long-range plans into applicable, practical land use code and planning regulations. However, there is no singular template, guide, or resource available to Colorado planners to aid in implementing food access goals through local land use code. Through the efforts of this project, comprehensive planning for health can be accomplished through land use codes.
