Develop educational programs and campaigns to inform the public and provide better access to information on healthy lifestyles and community health resources.
Improve partnerships between the City of Plano and school districts to promote healthy lifestyles and supporting activities through schools.
Support farm-direct programs (such as farm-to-work or farm-to-school) that link local farmers and food vendors to consumers.
Increase the number of tobacco and smoke-free environments, including outdoor areas, worksites, schools, and multi-unit housing, to reduce exposure to secondhand smoke and improve indoor air quality.
Encourage successful formation and patronage of retail food establishments with healthy options throughout the city, such as: farmers markets, community supported agriculture, corner and neighborhood stores, and supermarkets.
Increase health programs and outreach to senior citizens and meet needs of the growing number of retirees.
