Healthy Places by Design

The Town of North Kingstown is partnering with the West Bay Family YMCA to shape policies and programs on healthy living through their Healthy Places by Design project.  The project, funded by the Rhode Island Department of Health, is designed to strengthen land use, transportation and urban design policies and ordinances that guide the decision making process for the built environment to be more supportive of health, particularly as it relates to physical activity and healthy eating.

For information on how you can become involved with the Project Working Groups, please contact Kathi Crowe at the West Bay Family YMCA, at 401-295-6501 or
