On Thursday May 2, 2019 at 6 p.m., the City of Arvin in collaboration with the Dolores Huerta Foundation, the LGC, Alta Planning, and community members will hold outreach events at the Arvin Veteran’s Hall (at 4th and A Street) to seek public comments and participation for Arvin’s Safe Routes to School Plan.
The City aims to increase the safety of active transportation by engaging the schools, parents, students and community resident’s awareness and creating a collaborative plan to keep students safe as they walk, bike, and skateboard to school. The meetings will be held in Spanish and English, and childcare and refreshments will be provided.
Congratulations to the Cultiva la Salud team for their efforts in drafting and successfully passing the The Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Resolution!
Cultiva la Salud Health Policy Organizers, Yesenia Ocampo and Elizabeth Martinez, worked with the DHF Vecinos Unidos (United Neighbors) and the Arvin City Council to draft language that ensures Arvin’s General Plan will embrace policies that facilitate activities to promote healthier lifestyles and communities, including healthy diet and nutrition and adoption of city design and planning principles that enable citizens of all ages and abilities to undertake exercise.
On, Tuesday, December 6th, 2016, Camila Chavez, DHF Executive Director, and James Guzman, Co-Captain of Unidad en Piez y Ruedas (Unity in Feet and Wheels) Vecinos Committee, spoke in support of the resolution at the Arvin City Council Meeting and the board voted unanimously to approve it.
