Densifying Squamish Open House: How Walkable Neighbourhoods Support Community Health

When: May 19 - 07:00pm

Where: Online

How do changes in neighbourhood density impact health?

Research shows that as communities continue to sprawl, people’s health can be negatively affected. This presentation uncovers how increasing density improves our physical and mental health, and keeps our environment healthy by increasing activity levels, promoting social connectedness, and reducing emissions and our ecological footprint. The presentation will also address how increased density can make Squamish a more equitable community for all residents.

Virtual Open House: Wednesday, May 197 - 8:30 p.m.

UVic Master’s of Public Health Candidate Hope Moir & District Planner Matt Gunn

    I have read your survey questions. The questions listed are valid notwithstanding that they lead to an obvious answer and do not, by themselves, permit an holistic response to the issue of densification. What disappoints is the lack of very relevant questions that your survey excludes and without which your survey is materially incomplete.
