ChangeLab Solutions' childhood obesity prevention team (NPLAN) develops model policies that you can download from this website and use in your community. Our staff is also available to answer your questions about developing and implementing policies to create healthier communities. For example, you may want to know about the legal issues that may arise if you try to implement a particular policy. Or you may want to know what the ideal Complete Streets policy looks like. You do not need to be an attorney to speak with us or to use our materials.
Let’s say you’re interested in bringing a farmers market to your community. Take a look at the farmers market policy resources on our website. If those resources don’t answer your questions or you need more information about how to use our model farmers market zoning language, then fill out our contact form. A staff member will follow up with you to answer your question or schedule a phone call to discuss the issue further.
We also produce regular webinar trainings on how to use our model policies. If you miss a webinar of interest, you can always go back and watch the webinar recording in our archive. Sign up for our mailing list if you want to know about future webinars.
