The relationship between land use and other town planning decisions and their impact on the health and wellness of residents is increasingly being recognized as a critical component of planning for our communities' futures.  Community Circle has dealt with the health and wellness components of community planning as part of its work in several master plans as well as having completed projects whose entire focus is on health and wellness.  Including issues of health and wellness in the community conversation has become an increasingly important way to both educate the public as well as to identify their priorities regarding these issues.

“The way we design and build our communities can affect our physical and mental health. Designing and building healthy communities can improve the quality of life for all people who live, work, worship, learn, and play within their borders”

- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Making meaningful connections between people and places.

The circle is an inclusive shape that implies fairness and invites participation. It is the shape of a connected community. It is also used to indicate and define “place.”
