Between fall 2013 and summer 2014, Winona County Community Services will be developing a county-wide Active Living Plan to provide direction on policies and practices that create active communities through non-motorized transportation (biking and walking) and access to community recreation facilities. Winona County, along with the Minnesota Department of Health, will conduct a health impact assessment (HIA) to enhance the Active Living Plan by moving beyond the obvious activities, such as bicycle and pedestrian planning, to a more holistic analysis of policy decisions that may ultimately influence physical activity.
