Project Summary

Toole Design and the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) are breaking new ground when it comes to linking transportation investments with health outcomes. Our multi-year partnership with ODH, in collaboration with the Department of Transportation, is helping to bring active transportation policies, plans, and infrastructure to communities across Ohio, with an emphasis on low-income communities where health disparities are often the greatest.  Services have included facilitating town hall meetings and Complete Streets workshops, working on the state’s School Siting Design Manual, and developing resources on employer-based healthy commute incentives. The result is a shared playbook for transportation and health practitioners in Ohio.
