City Policy Profiles
Healthy Riverside Cities
Recognizing that health is an integral component of community development, cities across Riverside County are making a difference by including health policies into their general plans. Promoting access to fresh foods and vegetables, adoption of complete streets, and providing a wide range of health and mental health facilities are just a few examples of what is being done to shape the county into a better place to live, work and play.
Health Policies in to the General Plan
The Riverside County Department of Public Health (DOPH) prepared a survey in 2011 to identify jurisdictions within the region, working to enhance our communities’ health. This survey was originally prepared in collaboration with Western Riverside Council of Governments and was used to gather data from both, Western and Eastern Riverside County.
