ELM Principal looks at Building Healthy Places in one Tallahassee Neighborhood
ELM founding principal Russ Ervin will serve on an expert panel chosen to offer healthy development initiatives for a Tallahassee neighborhood challenged by high crime, poor health and employment issues.
This Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) is organized through the 400-member North Florida District Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI), a global organization dedicated to creating and sustaining thriving communities through responsible land use and development. One of ULI’s primary programs is known as the Building Healthy Places Initiative, which focuses on improving the link between human health and the built environment to create thriving communities.
Russ has more than 25 years of diverse experience in sustainable urban design and redevelopment, destination resort and community planning, mixed use planning and design, healthcare and retail/commercial development for a broad range of clients throughout the Southeastern U.S. and the Caribbean.
