Big health nod for Snoqualmie sidewalk planner Nicole Sanders

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recognized Snoqualmie Associate Planner Nicole Sanders for outstanding work and support in creating a healthier King County.

During the past two years, Sanders led local efforts to improve the community’s health through the Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) initiative. CPPW joins together local community organizations, cities, school districts, and public health agencies to prevent chronic disease and promote health through policy and environment changes.

“Our neighborhoods have changed drastically over the past decades,” commented Sanders.  “We have fewer kids walking to school, more kids eating fast food. We want to make sure people have sidewalks where needed to make walking a part of their routine.”
