The number of businesses, restaurants, grocery stores, schools, organizations and faith-based communities that have joined the Blue Zones Project movement for a healthier community now exceeds 160. And the list continues to grow.

Those that completed their respective Blue Zones pledge and became Blue Zones Project Approved or a Participating Organization during the first quarter of 2017 were recognized at the March 28 City Council meeting.
