Please join HEAL Cities Campaigns of LiveWell Colorado, the Mid-Atlantic, the Northwest and California in exploring the topic of Community Engagement and its unique role in cities.
Seeking out and listening to community voices is an important aspect of planning for a healthy future. Providing opportunities for the community to contribute their time and talent to implementing healthy plans, policies and programs is critical to success. The small cities of Milliken, CO and Falls City, OR successfully used community engagement strategies to create healthy environments for their residents. The active involvement of community members assured timely completion of important projects, and ensured that infrastructure investments met the needs of the city and residents alike.

This webinar will cover:
1. Success stories of two rural, small cities
2. Tips for engaging residents in planning
3. Benefits of engaging residents in project implementation
