Healthy living in American cities is a luxury inequitably distributed to residents. Access to quality food, public natural spaces, and the impact of pollutants are restricted to those who cannot afford to pay. This report suggests mayors must rethink their policy approach to be more health conscious by integrating strategies and tactics implemented at multiple stages. In so doing, mayors can address health equity, making their communities more sustainable "high road" places to live.
