Access to recreation facilities

Possible 1 point


To improve physical and mental health and social capital by providing a variety of recreational facilities close to work and home to facilitate physical activity and social networking.


Locate or design the project so that a publicly accessible outdoor recreation facility at least 1 acre (0.4 hectares) in area, or a publicly accessible indoor recreational facility of at least 25,000 square feet (2325 square meters), lies within a ½-mile (800-meter) walking distance of 90% of new and existing dwelling units and nonresidential use entrances. Outdoor recreation facilities must consist of physical improvements and may include “tot lots,” swimming pools, and sports fields, such as baseball diamonds.
