Edgewater City Council recently voted in favor of becoming part of LiveWell Colorado’s HEAL Cities and Towns Campaign. The HEAL Cities and Towns Campaign is a statewide effort to encourage the formation of policies and programs that encourage healthy eating and active living (HEAL).
Edgewater is forming a Citizen’s Committee to put implement these ideas in our city. According to Edgewater City Council Member Myra Keeble, “This committee will share its ideas related to healthy eating, physical activity, and workplace wellness and will ultimately make recommendations to City leaders on topics such as pedestrian and bicycle friendly streets, community gardening, farmers markets, and other policies that make Edgewater a healthier place to live, work and play.”
The first meeting of this Citizen Committee will be Monday January 12 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Edgewater Recreation Room at 25th and Gray. The meeting is open to Edgewater residents interested in encouraging healthy eating and active living in Edgewater.
