We work with both government entities and non-profit organizations to create and revitalize their public spaces. Organizations must comply with our non-discrimination policy and be able to demonstrate successful experience implementing large-scale civic projects.

  • Demonstrate a community benefit and include community input.
  • Commit to seeking community engagement throughout the planning and development process.
  • Include a project implementation timeline and budget, along with a sustainability plan.
  • Agree to exclusive BlueCross Healthy Place branding and naming rights.
