Dear Friends:

It has been two years since we completed the first Building Healthy Communities Plan for City Heights and began implementation. It is time now to reflect on our work and begin the process of revision. So I am writing to express my gratitude to everyone for all their hard work over the last two years and to provide information about what you can expect of the revision process.

As a result of your hard work and collaboration, Mid-City CAN and all our partners have begun to achieve success…. with more success certain to come.

The School Attendance Momentum Team set out on getting 100% TDAP compliance at Crawford, and got it!! The Food Justice Momentum Team worked hard with their partners on urban agriculture ordinances… and now we are able to plant food in our yards and keep chickens, goats, and bees. The Peace Promotion Momentum Team is off to a running start in advancing restorative justice. I am inspired by your work and touched by your leadership and dedication to City Heights.

The goal of the revision process is to up-date the Building Healthy Communities Plan for City Heights. We will do this through an abbreviated and structured process working Momentum Team by Momentum Team. This will be done directly with residents of City Heights who live within the Building Healthy Communities Initiative boundaries and who are the “most impacted” by the issue or subject. Organizational partners are being asked to participate in the revision process and the second round of implementation by playing a supporting or resource role. In preparation, I am meeting with organization executive leaders to extend invitations to participate and to discuss how organizations can best support the work.

The revision process will continue to focus on community organizing and advocating for system’s change. This means targeting administrative systems, policies, and regulations, for changes that advance health, racial equity, and build community power. This is not a planning process for direct services, programs, or education-only campaigns.

Again, thank you to everyone for all your hard work. I look forward to the next phase of Building Healthy Communities and to achieving more together. Please see the attached pages for details.

And remember, it’s really important that we hear from you, so if you have any questions or requests please contact me directly at 619-283-9624 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or talk to your staff organizer.

Sincerely;
