City of Beverly Hills Adopts Healthy Eating Active Living Resolution

At the recommendation of the Recreation and Parks Commission and the Health and Safety Commission, the Beverly Hills City Council recently adopted a resolution expressing its desire to become a Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) city.

Beverly Hills will join over one hundred other California cities that—under the guidance of the League of California Cities—have embraced policies to create work, school and neighborhood environments that are conducive to healthier living.

Beverly Hills already meets many of the HEAL campaign’s goals; encouraging healthy food retailers in the city, hosting a weekly Farmers’ Market, creating synergy between the Market and local schools, offering a plethora of recreational activities and having wellness policies in-place for city employees. The Beverly Hills Public Library also houses a large collection of materials on healthy living and physical fitness.

Being a HEAL city entails a renewed commitment to healthy food access, obesity prevention, employee wellness, increased opportunities for physical activity and a continued focus on attracting healthy food retailers. As the City approaches proposed future endeavors such as bike lanes, park enhancements, a community demonstration garden and outdoor fitness equipment, it will do so with the clarity and purpose of being a HEAL city.
