HEAL Committee

The Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Committee looks at city policies and programs that make it easier for Northglenn residents to live a healthier lifestyle. 

The city formed the committee after joining the HEAL Cities and Towns Campaign in the fall of 2014. This program is a partnership between LiveWell Colorado and the Colorado Municipal League (CML), which provides training and technical assistance to achieve the goals of HEAL. The committee focuses on healthy food access, active living, community engagement and social health. 

The committee currently meets the third Tuesday of the month from noon to 1 p.m. in City Hall, 11701 Community Center Drive. Community members and business owners are being sought to join the committee. If you are interested, please contact Ashley Kaade at the information in the contact box.
