The health of your community can largely be attributed to the opportunities that are provided for physical engagement among your community members.

For example, communities that depend on automobiles to transport people from one destination to another promote a less active lifestyle contributing to greater healthcare expenses related to poor physical health.

On the contrary, communities that promote walkability and bikeability by enabling people to reach their destinations without the use of an automobile promote opportunities for regular physical activity participation among its members. Therefore, healthcare costs are decreased as a result of better physical health.
