BUILD Health Challenge
What is the BUILD Health Challenge?
The BUILD Health Challenge is a national initiative funded by BUILD Health. The letters in BUILD stand for BOLD, UPSTREAM, INTEGRATED, LOCAL, and DATA-DRIVEN. In Trenton, we will be working with local partners and the surrounding community to “build up” Brunswick Avenue neighborhoods from the Battle Monument Park to Capital Health Regional Medical Center to create a “Safe and Healthy Corridor.” MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! If you have something you would like to see on the Brunswick Avenue “Safe and Healthy Corridor,” fill out the suggestion form.
What is the plan?
In Trenton, improvements will be made in neighborhoods along Brunswick Avenue, from Battle Monument Park to Capital Health Regional Medical Center. The improvements will be made by implementing changes to the built environment to make it a “Safe and Healthy Corridor.” Some possible changes include:
- The brand-new Capital Health Primary Care facility
- Cleaning and greening of vacant or abandoned lots
- Lighting and sidewalk improvements
- Upgrading parks and green spaces
- Community gardens and farmer’s markets
- Community events along the corridor
BUILDing it Right Requires Community Voices
Probably the most important element of our plan is getting suggestions from people who live, work, play, and pray around the corridor. We will be holding community meetings to get input, and are looking for community leaders to get involved in the plan. If you have suggestions for things you would like to see on the Brunswick Avenue “Safe and Healthy Corridor,” you can fill out the suggestion form!
