Community input

The committee is there to put ideas into action, but we need your input to guide what we do! From 2010-2012, committee members conducted a community health assessment to better understand what citizens thought might help them increase their activity level.  The assessment consisted of:

  • Key informant interviews
  • Focus groups with local citizens
  • An ongoing community health survey. Results from this survey have been compiled as of late March, 2011 and are available here, but we want to hear from more of you.  So a new survey was launched in late 2013 – give us your input here.
But one of the best ways to give your input is to join one of our workgroups.
Email motmprograms@gmail.com if you want to join any of the following:
  • Healthy/Local Food – improve access to healthy foods (farmers’ market, healthy options at restaurants, community gardens, cooking classes, healthy food in schools, fresh food in convenience stores).
  • Built Environment – advocate for sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes/trails, greenways/trails and parks.
  • Programs – creating programs or events that promote or increase physical activity (challenges, a mud run/obstacle course, teen programs, kids running club, MebFit, Mebane Walks)
  • Evaluation – collect data to help us improve programs, understand the needs of the community and properly report our results to stakeholders.
  • Communications – streamline our communications process and branding efforts to better inform the community and create a consistent message (newsletter, web/email sign up, etc.)
