Recommendations to Steering Committee:
Note from Alice – Wow that is a lot of recommendations!! One that hit me immediately was encouraging schools, programs and parks that are doing a good job with the above. One idea would be to create a Top Five list or Top 10 or something. It would get media attention and others would strive to get on it. We could expand it over time. Who could take this on? We could start with one category, for example, preschools.
