Healthy Peel by Design

Healthy Peel by Design
Typical North American suburban design results in low density neighbourhoods that are built for automobiles instead of pedestrians. Design of this kind has been linked to a wide range of chronic health issues, including obesity and diabetes. Peel is working with our partners to create and implement tools to design neighbourhoods that promote healthy, active lifestyles.
