COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
Making Our Community Healthier, One Neighborhood at a Time
Streets Alive! is Community Health. Every year, Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln works to make our whole community healthier by filling the streets with free health resources, fitness, music, dance, art, and fresh healthy food. Streets Alive! celebrates active, healthy living in a festival that welcomes thousands of people from all over the city.
Streets Alive! is Neighborhood Vitality. Strong and healthy neighborhoods benefit EVERYONE. A mobile festival that moves to a new neighborhood every 2 years, Streets Alive! partners to support a community development project that encourages physical activity and healthy lifestyles. The project benefits not only the host neighborhood but adds to the beauty, safety, and well-being of our entire city. The Streets Alive! 2019 - 2020 Community Development Project for will benefit our new hosts, the South Salt Creek/Cooper Park Neighborhood. Contact us for more information about being a sponsor for our new project.
The 2017-2018 Belmont project was our first Community Development Project. The project, an outdoor living and learning center, was a joint neighborhood initiative designed to encourage fitness, support education, encourage community engagement, increase neighborhood safety and support neighborhood revitalization. We broke ground for the project in August, 2018.
On Thursday, May 16, 2019, community sponsors and neighborhood stakeholders dedicated the new outdoor living and learning center with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Neighborhood children helped Kiwanis members and Lincoln Parks & Recreation staff plant trees around the shelter after the dedication.
Thank you to our wonderful community sponsors for their donations to the 2017-2018 project!
