The city and county came together to work on helping San Diegans live a healthy lifestyle and keep their communities safe. City councilmembers, on Tuesday, made the city's work on the Live Well! San Diego program started in 2010 posible. The city officialy began the partnership.

A decision not made too early for county board chiarman Greg Cox. "The county implemented the Live Well initiative to help create healthy, thriving communities but we knew we couldn't do it alone," he said. "That's why getting cities, school districts and businesses to sign up as Live Well supporters is so important. They can help spread the message throughout neighborhoods and communities."

Work the city will do while partnere with the county is not unusual. Now that the city is signed on to the Live Well work, it will make its own community development and transportation goals follow the plan for the county program. The cty has been carrying through projects designed to give San Diegans more opportunities to walk and bike, safely, and use public transporation that saves both money and work time.

The partnership agreement is just one more step taken to increase the number of locals who take up health building work commutes and life activities. Interim mayor Todd Gloria said, "What we are saying is that we all want to live in healthy communities."

Policy changes the city makes will make the county's efforts to guarantee neighborhoods can choose healthy lifestyles easier. The supervisor who has city neighborhoods in half his district, Ron Roberts, said, "Together we can make a difference.

This is a Center Line Policy Alert.
