The Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) partnership aims to reduce obesity in St. Louis (Missouri) by five percent by 2018.This project presents a vision for safe access to physical activity for pedestrians throughout the City of St. Louis. Engaging the community through pop-up demonstrations, the partnership is addressing walkability and highlighting ways to build better streets with traffic calming solutions.
As part of the Plan4Health St. Louis project, the HEAL Partnership is working with local experts to create a variety of tools that can be used in temporary demonstrations for traffic calming. These tools will be used for pop-up demonstrations in the following focus areas: the Ville and Greater Ville, JeffVanderLou, Dutchtown, and Carondelet. The pop-up demonstrations offer possible solutions and provide fun and safe social spaces to St. Louis residents while also encouraging healthy, active living.
