Envision Chino: Healthy City Element

Long known for its citrus farms and dairies, Chino is now a subrban community with a diverse and robust economy and about 80,000 people. When PlaceWorks led a team to update its general plan and zoning code, the process included an innovative “healthy city” element. The updates took a comprehensive approach to community health by incorporating policies throughout the general plan that encourage walkable neighborhoods and support health and human services. The healthy city element incorporates all these health-related policies.
