Wellness Advisory Committee
The Wellness Advisory Committee is comprised of 10-15 members representing local government agencies, community based organizations, recreation and sports organizations, health facilities/organizations, business owners, faith based organizations, residents and youth. Community residents and youth will represent three sectors (west, central, and east) of the planning study area. The Advisory Committee will meet 7 times throughout the project period and will continue to convene after adoption of the General Plan Update to monitor progress in the implementation of the Health and Wellness Element.
- The members consider methods for primary data collection including interviews, focus groups, and/or surveys. Local organizations tasks to assist City in public outreach will assist the City and General Plan consultant with data collection.
- Continue participation in ECVBHC meetings, develop policies to improve long-term community engagement and public participation in the study area, based on input received, consultant recommendations, and guidance provided by the Health and Wellness Advisory Committee.
- Provide additional workshop support to City staff, Health and Wellness Advisory Committee, and community members on community and systems solutions to health issues relating to physical activity, respiratory health, access to parks and open space, access to healthy foods, topics related to social and environmental justice, transportation safety and other relevant topics.
