Information for You

Healthy community design means planning and designing communities that supports active living and healthy eating, making it easier for people to live healthy lives.

Communities that are built to support physical activity, safe walking and biking, use of public transportation, and easy access to fresh foods are essential for good health.

National studies have shown that air pollution in our homes can be more of a health concern than air pollution outside.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas you cannot see or smell. It is produced when liquid, solid or gas fuel is burned—such as natural gas, propane, oil, charcoal, wood and wood pellets.

Mold needs moisture to grow. Due to Vermont’s humid climate, mold is commonly found in homes.

Pests in and around our homes can be a nuisance. Pests include insects (e.g. cockroaches, bed bugs, wasps, and garden bugs), rodents (e.g. mice and rats), and weeds.
