Click on the image to download Ashland HEAL Case StudyDuring their first year, the Ashland HEAL Steering Committee engaged with community residents and local community groups to identify strategies to increase access to healthy food and opportunities for physical activity. Through two community forums, Ashland's residents spoke and voted on Ashland's top HEAL strategies. In addition to some of the recreation needs cited in their 2011 Master Plan, the town generated the following projects to improve healthy eating and active living opportunities in Ashland:

  • Healthy Restaurant Program featuring Dot's Bread & Butter and the Common Man Restaurant as their first pilot sites
  • Joint Use Agreement with Ashland Elementary School, including:
  1. A project to increase community access to the school fit trail
  2. Development of a community garden on school grounds
  3. New Bike-Pedestrian Committee dedicated to increasing accessibility and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians
