Public Health Planning

SWRPC recognizes that community planning plays a vital role in promoting public health in the Monadnock Region. The disciplines of planning and public health share common concerns such as transportation planning to encourage physical activity, prevent injuries, improve air quality, and promote wellness. Regional and municipal planners are collaborating with public health partners to create healthier people and places throughout the Region. These partners understand the potential for parks and recreational facilities to contribute to physical activity and mental health and the effects that community design can have on energy use and greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to the growing public health concern of climate change. Additional topics important to both the planning and public health sectors are emergency preparedness including community infrastructure assurance and evacuation, and access to health care including assurance of accessibility and adequacy of facilities.

 

SWRPC’s Public Health Planning services include conducting community needs assessments and gap analyses, collection and analysis of public health-related data, developing Community Health Improvement Plans, and providing technical assistance to public health initiatives. Projects to which SWRPC has provided services and technical assistance include development of the Greater Monadnock Community Health Improvement Plan, Monadnock Rural Communities Opioid Response Project, Safe Routes to School Action Plans and Greater Monadnock Region Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Project.
