Preventing Chronic Disease | Using the Community ReadinessModel to Examine the Built and Social Environment: A Case Study ofthe High Point Neighborhood, Seattle, Washington, 2000-2010 -CDC

Residents of many cities lack affordable, quality housing. Economically disadvantaged neighborhoods often have high rates of poverty and crime, few institutions that enhance the quality of its residents’ lives, and unsafe environments for walking and other physical activity. Deteriorating housing contributes to asthma-related illness. We describe the redevelopment of High Point, a West Seattle neighborhood, to improve its built environment, increase neighborhood physical activity, and reduce indoor asthma triggers.
