Community Health and Wellness Element
The General Plan will also include a stand-alone healthy community element that will include a detailed analysis of existing health conditions in and around Coachella that can serve as the basis for the creating of a stand-alone public health element for the General Plan. The analysis will include topics such as physical activity, respiratory health, access to parks and open space, access to healthy foods, topics related to social and environmental justice, transportation safety and other relevant topics. The optional task also includes the development of policies and implementation actions for health in the General Plan. While there would be a stand-alone element, some of the policies relating to land use, transportation and parks would be included in other elements.
