2010 Guide: Increasing Physical Activity through Community Design
The National Center for Bicycling and Walking (NCBW) released an updated edition of their publication, Increasing Physical Activity through Community Design -- A Guide for Public Health Practitioners and Livable Community Advocates (known as the IPA Guide, for short). The IPA Guide explains the connections between community design and people’s levels of physical activity and health. It offers advice on how communities can organize and take action to increase physical activity in their neighborhoods and reverse national trends toward increased obesity, physical inactivity, and related diseases and health problems.
