Revere wins statewide award for Urban Trail design

Revere on the Move is proud to announce that the City of Revere has been recognized by the Massachusetts Public Health Association as a leader in Healthy Community Design.
mayor dan rizzo will receive the award during the “Health by Design” event which will take place on Thursday, October 9th at 1PM at the Massachusetts Statehouse.
Revere received the award in recognition of the work behind the creation of the City’s first urban trail in October 2011. Since then, Revere on the Move has continued to create new opportunities for community members to be physically active through healthy community design. In the past few months alone, Revere has marked the City’s first bike lane and celebrated the inauguration of a second urban trail in the Beachmont neighborhood. Across Revere, kids are walking to school in record numbers. Revere also hosted its first 5k race this year, and hundreds of residents participated in the second annual Citywide Fitness Challenge.
This great work has been led by the talented and dedicated volunteers of Revere on the Move who attribute their success to strong partnerships with community organizations and city departments. Revere on the Move’s future plans include launching a Healthy Dining and Healthy Corner Store initiative as well as creating a Healthy Community Design Guide tailored to Revere.
