Emphasis on one of the seven elements of a healthy community: Health and Wellness, Neighborhoods and Community, Arts and Culture, Basic Needs, Education, Economy, Environment

  • Promotes health and wellness:
    • A healthy community assures access to high quality health services on a personal, community and systems level and promotes a healthy lifestyle.
  • Fosters strong and connected neighborhoods and communities:
    • A healthy community assures equal opportunity for all individuals to participate in and influence decisions that affect each of their lives and embraces diversity and promotes a “sense of community.”
  • Provides broad access to arts and culture:
    • A healthy community encourages a wide variety of recreational, historical and cultural opportunities.
  • Meets the basic needs of residents:
    • A healthy community creates a compassionate social, economic, and political environment where people have full opportunities to meet basic needs for themselves and their families, to build assets, and to advance themselves.
  • Creates quality education and learning opportunities for all ages:
    • A healthy community opens themselves to new ideas and provides high quality education and lifelong learning for all members of the community.
  • Ensures a vibrant and diversified economy:
    • A healthy community fosters an economy that is diverse, vital and innovative, that grows strong businesses and business districts, and creates adequate jobs and income for residents.
  • Protects and stewards the natural environment:
    • A healthy community helps preserve and sustain the environment.
