Meeting Information

Healthy Communities Committee

Welcome to the Healthy Communities Committee! Health is impacted by where we live, work, learn and play. We seek to influence policy areas that will contribute to the overall health of Colorado and we act as a clearinghouse for best practices in healthy community initiatives. Other strategies we evoke to help create healthy communities include:

  • Providing strategic resources for grant-seeking cities, towns and counties
  • Providing training and networking for planners and other professionals
  • Compiling research and resources about healthy communities that are pertinent to Colorado

If you’re interested in learning more, sharing your community’s experience or brainstorming ways to better integrate health and planning, we’d love to hear from you!


How can you get involved?

We are a group of planning professionals that advocate for healthy communities in Colorado. We promote equitable access to healthy food and active living.

We meet every six (6) Mondays from 12-1pm. The next several committee meetings are scheduled for January 13, February 24, April 6, and so on. You can join by phone with the following information:
