The first step for a city or town wanting to join the Campaign is to pass a resolution. Municipalities are encouraged to modify their resolution based on current local conditions and feasible political actions for their particular city/town. Become a HEAL City by following the five steps below:
Step 1: Contact the Campaign to discuss opportunities for your city to join
Step 2: Identify existing policies related to: Complete streets, worksite wellness, health elements in general plans and healthy food access.
Step 3: Download the HEAL Cities Campaign Resolution and work with the Campaign staff to draft a resolution with specific policy goals. Work with staff to tailor the resolution language to the unique needs of your city.
Step 4: Work with Campaign staff to develop a strategy for bringing the resolution or policy to your city council.
Step 5: Pass your HEAL Cities Resolution or policy.
Once your city has adopted a resolution or policy, you will be added to our HEAL CITIES map of the movement.Submit a Policy
