Is my neighborhood built for an active lifestyle?

Activate Omaha is working with neighborhood groups in Omaha to help them identify opportunities and barriers to adopting healthy lifestyles.

Neighborhood assessments provide an excellent opportunity for neighbors to share their concerns about their environment and how activity-friendly it really is.

Evidence shows that healthy communities are places where people can be active on a regular basis and where services, shops, and retail are proximal and well connected to their neighborhood.

You and your neighbors can conduct a Neighborhood Assessment identifying the active living issues and the community design standards particularly relevant to your neighborhood.

 

What does your neighborhood need to be more ACTIVE?!  What does your neighborhood need to break down the barriers to ACTIVE LIVING?  Once you, as a neighborhood, determine the needs –you can work to influence change.
