PLANNING A HEALTHY COMMUNITY

Zoning and Planning Board Members Earn Education Credits

December 7, 2015

[LIBERTY] – Learn what steps towns and villages can take to develop healthy, walkable communities at a Sullivan Renaissance seminar entitled “Promoting Healthy Communities through Planning and Zoning.”  The free program will be delivered by staff from the New York Planning Federation via a live webcast on Wednesday, December 9 at 6:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Liberty.

The webinar will also be broadcast at a satellite location in White Lake at the Dr. Duggan School.

Healthy Communities is a growing trend focusing on policy changes at the local level that support healthy eating and active living in one’s community.  The planning and zoning process creates an opportunity to provide residents and visitors with activities that contribute to healthy, active lifestyles. These policies promote walking and bicycling, community gardens, farmers’ markets and public gathering spaces.  They allow shops and restaurants to locate in mixed-use areas that are safe and pedestrian-friendly.

The seminar is open to everyone, but two hours of continuing education credits will be given to members of local planning and zoning boards.  Participants will also hear about Sullivan Renaissance’s Healthy Communities Initiative grant program.

Space is limited, pre-registration is requested.  Refreshments will be provided in Liberty. 

For more information or to register, contact Sullivan Renaissance at www.sullivanrenaissance.org or 845-295-2445.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, FisherMears Associates, Kristt Company, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation, and WSUL/WVOS.
