Active Living

ACTIVE LIVING
Increase walking and bicycling in the community and school settings. We will use a comprehensive approach through policy, system and environmental changes, in which research shows are known to lead to physical activity behavior changes when done together. We would also like to help provide safe and convenient opportunities for physical activity through active living policies and practices in community design, land use, site planning, and facility access which are also proven to being an effective way to increase levels of physical activity.
