Coalition meets to discuss community needs

The ALProHealth Coalition met February 16 to discuss possible upcoming projects. Funds have most recently been used at the crosswalk on Ridgeley Street and to help pay for lighting in the boxcar park project downtown. The mission of ALProHealth is to increase access to healthier foods and promote active transportation to everyday destinations. The local coalition in each community identifies needs in that community.
