Built Environment Initiatives

Creating Healthy Places Partnership is working toward getting Complete Streets policies in place at the City and County levels. To improve levels of physical activity, a streetscape improvement project will be put into action. As safety and accessibility of streets in the neighborhood are enhanced and as connections between schools, parks, services, and homes improve, residents are encouraged to walk to destinations and overall livability of the area will improve. To further provide opportunities to be active, local parks will be revitalized and new ones may be created, designed to be attractive to all ages and accessible to people of all abilities.
