The results of the survey and focus groups, as well as other community health data and information from our public health system, have been used to identify the following six priority areas. They are:
- Affordable housing
- Community engagement and inclusion
- Drugs and alcohol
- Medical and dental
- Mental health
- Safety net/basic needs
Now, we are sharing these six areas with you, our residents. We ask for your input to select the top three health priorities to address in the next five years.
