The Urban Land Institute has been promoting compact, walkable, mixed use communities for years as means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from cars and improving quality and affordability of life. These design attributes also contribute to physical health. And now we have the opportunity to take the next step in creating high qualify places that deliver much more, places that make the healthy choice the easy choice for residents while improving the value and economic strength of communities.

And now we have the opportunity to take the next step in creating high qualify places that deliver much more, places that make the healthy choice the easy choice for residents while improving the value and economic strength of communities.

The land use community is now finding it profitable to reach across the table to the health care community and join forces to promote land use patterns that lower the increasingly stifling health care costs to individuals and institutions, while at the same time meeting the increasing market demand for walkable, bikeable, people friendly places.

Please join James A. Moore, Design Principal, HDR, Inc., Dr. Jay Maddock, University of Hawai‘i Office of Public Health Studies, James "Kimo" Steinwascher, Alexander & Baldwin, and Councilmember Breene Harimoto, City & County of Honolulu for this unique event and important discussion.
