NYC's Active Design Guidelines

Attached, please find links to New York City's recently released "Active Design Guidelines".  This is an excellent document that was jointly developed between AIA|NYC and the NYC's Department of Design and Construction under the leadership of Commissioner David Burney, FAIA.

Essentially, the guidelines serve as a manual of strategies for creating healthier buildings, streets and urban spaces - with an overall emphasis on promoting greater physical activity in a more sustainable environment.
