Council Announcement on the Champions Institute

June 29, 2021

Thank you Mayor Cole.

I have been accepted into the Active People, Healthy Nation Champions Institute.  The training I will receive is with Smart Growth America in partnership with the CDC Division on Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity.  

The program selected local elected officials from across the country to gain experience and expertise from planners, social scientists and policy expertise from across different disciplines of study.  

The experience I gain will help support our community’s efforts to implement our Complete Streets policy with the goal of activity-friendly routes to everyday destinations in Billings.  Helping to build an active and walkable community.

Thank you to Staff, Mayor Cole and others who supported my application.
