Healthy Policies & Placemaking

Healthy policies help make smart, sound choices readily available and easily accessible where we work, learn, play and live. They are a tool for reducing disparities and achieving health equity. CCHD works with partners across the community to develop several types of healthy policies as part of the department’s health promotion and disease prevention efforts. Click on the topics below to learn more about each type of policy.


Placemaking

Placemaking is a participatory approach to imagining, planning, designing and managing public spaces. CCHD supports healthy placemaking through a number of its initiatives as it explores use and untapped potential of our shared spaces. 

CCHD’s Try 5 Challenge is one placemaking effort maintained by the Department. The challenge aims to get residents out and exploring new and revitalized trails. Learn how to join the challenge here.

Firearm Safety The safest way to store a firearm in the home is locked and unloaded with the ammunition locked in a separate container.

CCHD works with health, behavioral health, human service, and social service professionals to:

  • Provide best practice recommendations for firearm safety and injury prevention.
