The City accepted the award last Friday, after being nominated for its Healthy Communities Program and the development of the Community Health and Wellbeing policy adopted last November.

Deputy Mayor Laura Gray said the City was now developing its first Local Public Health Plan to increase the health and wellbeing of the community.

The City received Healthy Communities Initiative funding from the Federal Government in 2010.
