Right now, many North Carolinians are going about their day without ever wondering if their communities could be healthier. Obviously, you're different. You envision a place for streetlights along a darkened roadway, a park to occupy an undeveloped plot of land, bike lanes to help you get from home to work. You see opportunities to make your community better.
Fortunately, you've come to the right place. Shape Your World is all about making our communities safer and more connected, while also curbing rising rates of obesity and other chronic diseases. It starts on this website. Use our tools and resources to begin improving communities across North Carolina. Making a difference can be easier than you think.
Involved citizens in Banner Elk want improved connectivity for this active community. If only wanting it was enough.
