Next Thursday 3/31: Healthy Communities Forum
- Dear Friends,
Please join me at the Healthy Communities Forum Kick-Off -"Building Healthy
Places for a Healthier Future" - on Thursday, March 31 from 6:30-8:30pm at
San Mateo Council Chambers (330 West 20th Avenue). Flyer with additional
details attached. Dinner will be provided, no charge. *RSVP
Mayor Jack Mattews of the City of San Mateo will be providing the welcome.
Our guest speaker is Don Weden, a retired Santa Clara County principal
planner, and well known for his "Cities for All Ages: Land Use Planning and
Our Aging Population" talk. He will be providing an overview of the forces
that will shape the economic, social, and environmental health of our cities
� and what we need to do to assure that our individual cities are prepared
for the major changes and challenges rapidly coming our way. Afterward,
we�ll discuss solutions and strategize about next steps together.
These Healthy Communities Forums explore how the various facets of the
health of our cities � economic, environmental, and social � intersect.
Each Forum is a unique opportunity for decision makers, community leaders,
and the general public to listen to visionary speakers who share their
knowledge related to a specific aspect of a healthy community. Participants
will engage in dialogue to connect the vision of a healthy community to
their own community, discuss solutions, and together decide on meaningful
next steps. Future talks include transportation, housing, local economies,
and public health.
